Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Unstable. As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.


Show us some examples of Unstable..

Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Monday Sunset and the following Monday by Sunset (Whenever that is for you ). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

Thanks, Joayne! And yeah, I am having fun with the flash. :-P One thing that is driving me nuts though is the 5D's dirty sensor. Its incredibly dirty sensor. Before I got the flash I would often shoot with the lens wide open but now, stopping down so much, every little thingy shows up in the pic. I'm spending more time removing dust bunnies than editing! I was thinking I should finally get me a wet-cleaning kit. I've always been afraid of doing it myself but I'm not afraid of doing it on as old a camera as the 5D.

And there's no secret. Just stacked the suckers, shot them, add more, shot them, add more until they fell and shot that too.  :p

Wow, those are great shots Levina. the dice look like they are just about to go over.
Well done.

Do not be afraid of cleaning the sensor, it is easier than you think.

Isn't there a secret to putting the last load on the stack and immediately getting back to the camera in time to shoot the falling dice just before they hit the table and rest quietly? Even if I had the technology to blend shots, I could never be that agile. It's an amazing image.

Thank you very much, Kevin.
I have had my camera sensors cleaned professionally in the past, but it cost some 40 to 50 euro. And now, shooting with these small apertures, any new spot will show immediately. So I feel this is the time to learn. I saw this kit on Amazon.de. Most user reviews are positive and I assume it's safe. https://www.amazon.de …arp_d_product_t​op?ie=UTF8 (external link)

Do I need one of those sensor loupes too, you think? I was thinking of getting this one: https://www.amazon.de …r=1-1&keywords=sensorlupe (external link) One of those things that go by different brand names.

Thanks! And no, I was standing right next to the table plus I was using a remote shutter control, so no secrets. I just had to click at the right time, is all. Although it took a few tries because I wanted the dice to fall to the left and of course they wouldn't at first... :rolleyes:

I've always used Eclipse (external link)

Follow instructions and it is easy. You'll have to do the first round multiple times. You Tube + Eclipse Camera Sensor Cleaning
Yes the 5D Classic is a dust collector!!

It seems like ages since I've cleaned a sensor. With the new technology I hardly think about it anymore.. :rolleyes:

I should probably clean my 5Dc  :p

I only see rather expensive kits from Eclipse in the shops here, so I ordered the VSGO kit from Amazon.de. User reviews are good and they claim it's safe.

But do I need one of those magnifying loupes?

I don't think that you will need the loupe. I use a cleaner that is very similar
to the one that you ordered and it does a good job. Just make sure that you
ordered the right size for your sensor.

Good to know I don't need a loupe. And yes, I have ordered the ones for a full frame sensor. Thanks, Kevin!

I agree with Kevin, skip the Loupe. I bought one and it was not helpful... ...
I realized after I sent you the link on Amazon, that the Eclipse, cannot be air freighted.
It can only travel by land. -? So you won't find it in Europe by that name, from that company.

You can buy Eclipse here, Jo. Amazon.com will even ship it to the Netherlands.
But over here in the shops I could only find Eclipse kits that were considerably more expensive than the one you linked to, or if they were more moderately priced, there would only be like 4 swabs in the pack. :rolleyes: So I just bought the kit from VSGO for 25 euro.
