Photo of the Day Theme
A high contrast blur photo of a toy.
Vulk is this little LEGO Mixels character who I’ve adopted as my adventuring toy subject. You’ll probably be seeing a lot of him for as long as this photo project –and who am I kidding, this blog– lasts.

Tasked with snapping a blur photo –which is distinctly different than a bokeh photo, but don’t ask me to explain how– I was double confused by the who subject being a toy… until I remembered Vulk. Good ol’ Vulk. I strapped Vulk to a stick and swung him around the backyard for about ten minutes until I was both dizzy and satisfied that I’d located the proper settings for an action-blur-spinning photo in the full afternoon daylight of a summer Saturday.
Those settings, if you’re curious, are f/19 1/30 seconds at ISO100 on a 105mm lens.
