High energy grandson at playground

Post by Duck »

Took my oldest grandson (and my camera) to a nearby playground. While he was burning off extra energy I was burning off some frames. Towards the end of our stay I thought I'd do a multiplicity shoot in order to try and capture that energy photographically. Here are the two images I was able to get.

I’m gonna have to try this. I should’ve done it at the trampoline park yesterday with our Wild Boys.

Yes, definitely give it a try. It's not as hard as it looks. the trick is to frame the scene and not follow the action. Let the action move through the scene. Shoot manual, of course, so the settings don't change. Then open the various images as a stack and mask away. Easy peasy :D

Who would have thought !!! Sounds so simple and I can see by your description that it is. Thanks for the info. Of the two images I prefer the first one most. Nice concept and well composed.

I agree. The first image was actually the second set I took but because of the dynamic play within the frame it definitely came out better. I think it captures the action nicely though all the overlaps made editing a bit challenging. ;)

Duck, The first for me. I am suspect even the photo doesn't capture the exuberance and energy but it is a good approximation. Like the flip books of old, if you can remember. Matt

I always like the multiple images of sports figures doing their thing. He'll love these! S-
