Day 350 - Take a chance

South Berwick, ME

Interesting FGR Challenge today, Dice. We have all kinds of odd dies floating around somewhere, I bought a bunch for my kids last camping season to play with. They are most likely still in our camper. I am doing nothing special here, no flash, camera on tripod with a slightly slow shutter. The real trick is trying to time and aim the dice to the 2 second timer and the small field of view for the 100mm Macro. I stole the dice from our Yahtzee game. I'd better go put them back, otherwise I risk getting in deep trouble.

Very good! I've done a few shots similar to this and always find it a challenge. Terrific camera work (and patience!)

Very nice effect. Must have taken a few attempts to 'freeze' one at 1/4 sec. V
