headless. by Pretty-As-A-Picture headless. by Pretty-As-A-Picture
i had to upload this, because it freaks me out.
it almost looks like the blurred people moving in front of my camera have no heads, maybe it's just me though.
thought that was pretty cool.
so yeah.
model is deanna.
i would have taken much cooler shots but we were there at night & i hate the built in flash on my camera.

You can use a lens with a larger aperture (f/2.8) and thus use 1/25 sec exposure in this case: the people will still be blurred, but they won't lose their heads... depending on how hectic they are...
Besides: you'll notice that the bright light is the cause of the headless hectics. You can use the brush tool in PS to 'make' heads if that pleases you.

would it have been impossible to not use your built in flash for these night shots? or were you searching for another source of light besides the attractions allready present in the shot?

It looks a bit like the two other people have wings; or is that just me? Love the carousel. =D

Wow, it does look like they don't have heads. Creepy.

I actually clicked on it because of the bright colours of the merry-go-round but now that I read the caption and look at it, I see what you mean. It's still a cool shot though, especially the model's pose.

What makes it even creepier for me is that it's at a fair and people always associate fairs with fun, not freakiness. :thumbsup:

I don't necessarily think this is macabre... but it is quite creepy though. I like how fast moving objects turn out when shot. This one is a perfect example. :)
