    Default Punch in the face

    I took this as a self shot for the Flickr 365Days group using my D90 with a nikkor 50mm f/1.8 and the SS-400 speed light.

    I had my wife put her fist about 1" from my face while I shook my face left and right like a wet dog until my head hurt. I ended up taking about 150 shots within about 10 minutes until I couldn't take any more. (having a speed light is a must) I used Picasa to add a little more blur around the edges.

    73/365


    Thoughts appreciated.

    Interesting capture. I feel that you should add a little motion blur to the hand too.
