What do you mean by kinda a double exposure

The globe is both spinning, and still, in the shot (long exposure). It's not double exposure in the true sense.

Gotcha Sibil, I like it.

Thanks, Joayne. I stole Chip from my son, thinking I could stage him somewhere on my hike today. I thought he was cute too.

I like the globe shot, Sibil. What kind of globe is that? Looks like a world globe but there isn't anything on it. Unless the spinning makes it invisible?

That is clever, Stina. Very cool shot!

Thanks. It is not a true world globe. just a decorative piece.

What a week this has been. Crazy busy and then this theme. I knew fairly early in the week that I wanted to do something with those drawing dolls, the mannequins, or whatever they're called in English. And then Joayne posted her shot of one! Pfff... I thought I had to look for something else now, but after thinking about it for a while I thought I could still do it. Especially since I had something else in mind, so the shots would be different.

One thing that was clear to me almost from the start, was that I wanted them to do something they can't: move. More specifically I wanted them to dance. So over the weekend I took about 1000 shots of them, in all kinds of different settings, lights, you name it, trying to find a way to make them dance. And in the process I also made some unexpected shots that I like. :)

Okay, so I started like this. I just loved the light!

So then I went to this. Lying on the floor in my hallway, photographing shadows, which I thought looked extra terrestrial.

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: 403 | MIME changed to 'application/xml'


But the objective was to get them to dance. So first I tried moving the camera with a slow shutter speed. That worked. Kinda. But also gave me ghosting that I thought I didn't like. After thinking for a bit, I remembered an old turn table that I had stored somewhere. It didn't work any more so I had to swing it manually (and knocked of the dolls a couple of times!), but that gave me the effect I was after, although I quickly realised that the dancing couple needed a setting with static figures to show they were actually moving and not just out of focus. That gave me this:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: 403 | MIME changed to 'application/xml'


But in the end, the one that I like best is one I took early on with just moving the camera. I played with it in Photoshop a bit and it is my absolute favourite. I probably should have posted only this one, but I just very much wanted to share the journey I took with the theme. I hope that's okay?

I also made a little stop-motion thingy. I was into this a bit a few years ago, but don't have the proper tools for it any more, like a surface to pin little Bozo (made him myself 4 years ago!) to. I therefore gave him play-doh shorts so he would stick to the surface! :D Anyway, it's not very good. Just a bit of fun. When AMASS goes live we will be able to embed videos, but for now I can only give you a link to it: http://www.ipernity.co​m/doc/288477/36039671 (external link)

Wow Levina! I am always so amazed at your creativity for these themes. These are just wonderful to see. The second photo really intrigued me. It has the flavor of an Alien family. All well thought out and executed.:)

Very nice Christy. I can see where my brain needs a shot of creativity. You all have done so well.:)

I sat out this week and took the role of admiring audience. There's been much to admire. When the topic was announced, I was in Yosemite. Maybe they'll return to the alphabet, I thought. It's time for F.

Oh, I found so many Fs! On the way to the park, I passed several Fallow Fields. The time of year made F in Yosemite easy. It was cold. I got shots of Frosty things and Frozen things. Plus, leaves were Falling, and many had Fallen. Deer were Foraging, the Females with their Fawns. There were also other Fotographers. At the Amtrak station on the way back, a long Freight train passed through. Of course, I hadn't set up any of these scenes.

When F does come around, my pictures won't be Fresh.

Can you guess what word comes to mind? :evil:

Thanks, Eddie and Terry!

Christy, that is a good one! The blanket made me laugh out loud; that detail just makes the picture for me. But also the rug (or looks like it anyway) is great. I love it!

EDIT: Thanks very much, Jo!!
