I was kicking back thinking about what I could possibly create for my next liquid vision entry.Â The idea of aluminum foil came to mind.Â Â So I thought to myself “What about it? How can you make foil interesting in a way that people have never seen before?”.Â Â Hmmmmm, how about a foil man, catching a foil ball rolling down a foil box (like a slide).
The idea to me was intriguing but there was yet another twist.Â I wanted to be able to see the motion of the ball rolling and the man catching it.Â Â So why did this appeal to me?Â Because there was a photographic puzzle before me that had to be solved.Â Â Â Â Not only did I have to light the scene but I had to figure out how to precisely control the lightÂ and make it do what I needed.
On the surface it seems simple but trust me…. its not.Â Another variable that had to be factored into this puzzle was the timing of the ball moving freely.Â Â Well enough of the brainy stuff….
There are no photoshop tricks involved to create this affect only a single frame was shot.Â Enjoy.
