Headshake Portrait

6

This is one way to do an interesting portrait with an Actionsampler Flash. It’s very easy. Just follow these simple steps. Check it out!

After playing with my many shots using an Actionsampler Flash, I found an alternative that will always give you good and funny results.

It is just a simple Idea : “Shake your head”

Directions:
Step #1 Look for someone.
Step #2 Get close enough to do a close-up of his face.
Step #3 Tell him to shake his head as much as he can.
Step #4 Press the trigger and shoot!

Shake it and enjoy!

The Actionsampler Flash snaps up a series of four images on one 35mm print, and now comes with a 4-step sequential flash! This multilens camera can record your subject’s movement day and night. See it with the rest of our Multilens cameras here!

    Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl.
