    Here is another capture of some of the light bulbs that SpaceNut and I, ClarkKent, decided to break today. We finally got some more time to get together to continue our project, so here we are today and decided to share one with ya while we are working.

    Wow! How many attempts did that take to get the timing right?


    It's a great shot. Love the greenness.

    Wow, that's cool. That must have been a seriously fast shutter...that hammer is absolutely frozen.

    I came across some random DIY photo website and saw some cool shots of a bb gun shooting wine glasses and such...have you tried anything like that?

    This is just superb. The hammer is frozen, but the crystals are flying. Can you explain how you guys did it?

    I'm curious too...my guess is that the glass shards were traveling at a slightly faster speed than the hammer. If you look, some of the shards are not really too out of focus, some are really only just slightly blurry. I think after the hammer hit the bulb the pressure released caused the shards to shoot out slightly faster than the hammer. Just my guess...

    Great shot. You guys most have loads of fun when you get together.

    I guess the green thing to do is go fluorescent anyway. :lol:

    i'd like to pick a nit.

    it's a great shot. but the hammer is too frozen for the amount of it (or lack thereof) in the frame. i think if you could see the whole head, maybe even the claw and handle, it would work better. and/or a slightly slower shutter speed.

    these are my opinions, though, that's all they'll ever be :)
