    anyone into camera tossing? i just found out about this stuff and decided to try it out.

    "Camera tossing is, well, just what it sounds like. Set your camera on long exposure or self-timer mode, press the shutter, and toss it into the air just before it goes off. Catch the thing (or have it land on a soft surface), and ogle the results.

    Why would you do this? Quite simply, it’s the photographs: beautiful, abstract images you can’t get any other way. Many photographers also find the technique liberating, as it forces them to exert less control over the final image."



    here are a few of my results.

    wait untill you catch/jar it just when the shutter tries to close


    There is a reason that people with SLRs shouldn't try this.

    I've done it, dropped my d200, and broke the mount on the lens.

    not doing it again.
