Here’s another shot in the Tools theme. I’ve been thinking about this one for some time, and was surprised by how easy it was to make. I’d expected the lighting to require a more elaborate setup than was actually necessary.
I was hoping to capture the sawdust flying on this one, and was relatively successful. I was also planning to experiment with various shutter speeds. I’d envisioned a high shutter speed resulting in a nearly stop action image, and a slow speed resulting in a smooth blur effect. In actuality, you’d be surprised by how similar this shot looks at 1/30th of a second and 1/1000th of a second. Apparently it takes a much higher speed to freeze this blade.
