So what you trying to say that you've been reading CS since 2006? You're an 'old bird' who can 'order' mods to close thread and ask members to make peace but still need your mummy to pay for all your fancy gears?
I've been reading combat book since I'm 12, that will make me a war veteran
lol 4 pages.. anyhow, is there a name for the techniques used?
regardless. i think this noob/pro/senior hierarchy is a deadweight in clubsnap, especially in a photographic forum environment. I feel that sometimes, our forum has not been as dynamic or vibrant because of hierarchy.
The label for being an 'old bird' or 'pro' or g'reenhorn' is redundant cuz nobody really knows how pro you are or how noob you are. You might know how to set up multiple strobes or know your way around astrophotography, but where does the 'pro/noob' label really end?
What's really more important is that people be forthcoming in teaching/learning from each other, and promoting the sort of environment that is beneficial to local photography.
Guys .... this is the Newbies Corner, so let's be more understanding.
There are new newbies, average newbies and lau newbies.
Remember when we first started, we asked, "what's this Aperture thingy?"
So, IMHO, if you hate to read silly questions, do not come in here unless you want to help around ... and plse be more polite to the newbies.
always the Light, .... always.
For the first sentence, it is explaining a SINGLE EXPOSURE (one single opening and closing of the shutter) in which the subject moves from start position to the end, but is illuminated at certain intervals by a flash. Obviously the whole sequence is only a second or 2, and no normal flash can fire so many shots so rapidly, so multiple flashes were used.
For the second photo
"Single exposure, combination time exposure with tungsten spotlight and electronic flash to freeze the end pose."
The subject is being constantly lit with a tungsten (i.e. filament) light during the sequence, thus showing a smooth 'flow' in the movement.
The brighter flash at the very end allows the camera to 'freeze' the final posture.
hope that's clear enough... in plain english.
CLAP CLAP CLAP ...
