8 Bigmacs. Two SB-800 speedlights and on-camera flash (nikon CLS kicks ass) Nikon D80 I think at 1/125 f/5.6. Fast enough to shoot hand-held before it would tip over. The macs are skewered with two wooden kebab skewers to a piece of plasticine (unfortunately visible). Some photoshop curves and black and white mixing. -Zach Slootsky
The Coburg Cafe's monster burger. Regular sized burger on top for size reference; 1 lb. hamburger, ham, bacon, swiss & american, on an 8" bun w/all the fixins' -Trask Blueribbon [Ed note: remember to tell us your camera/settings!]
This photo was taken at my son's school cafeteria. We had lunch together. It was abysmal. Jello was good though. I snapped this photo with my Verizon HTC Touch. Basic settings. My technique was to hold back the vomit before I barfed on my phone. -Robbie Amburgey
Thanks for the entries, and look for a more classic Shooting Challenge topic next Monday—something more along the lines of photography for photography's sake. (Not that I don't love watching you poison yourselves in the name of art.)
Gizmodo's Shooting Challenge is a weekly opportunity to dust off that fancy dSLR and experiment with hundreds of others in a new photography theme announced every Wednesday. May the best shot rule the internet for a week!
