Day 17

Counting to four. Looks like I have 4 right hands. And luckily I have them numbered for just such an occation. Not too much more to say about this one. Oh, no photoshop involved. I did do some cropping, and levels settings (upped the contrast and made the blacks blacker) in lightroom. But no photo manupulation. Pretty much straight out of the camera.

Look at those keywords...

 

 

Photo info:  I guess this is giving it away, but that is the purpose of the Photo info: section.  Then again, everyone has probably already figured out the "trick" behind the photo.  I have 4 right hands, and have decided to stop trying to hide it.  There. I feel better getting that off my chest.
But normal, single right handed photographers would probably have to set their 580EXII speed lights to multi-flash, 1 HZ, count = 4,  1/32 power with the camera set for a 5 second (or longer) exposure in a completely dark room.  They could then position their hands so each time the flash fired, the hand counted the next number.  But having 4 hands makes this easier.

Lessons learned: First time I've used multi-flash photography.  I first tried it this evening on the rain that was falling, but the results were disappointing.  I then tried it with a normal room wall background, but it picked up too much detail between shots.  Going to a black background worked well.  Hand really stands out.   I also played around with in camera multiple exposure.  That is also pretty cool and will certainly be used in future 365 photos.
