Canon EOS 500D; 18-55m Lens (Shot at 21mm); 20" f/18 ISO800. I shot this in my rooms at Queens' College. I set the camera for a 20" exposure (with a 2" self timer!) with flash (with a diffuser). Once the flash had gone off I ran and jogged on the spot in the doorway for the entire 20 seconds, to create a ghost effect. -Tom Medley

I shot this using my new Nikon D3000 I got for Christmas. To get this shot, I set up my tripod at the bottom of my stairs. I then set the 2 second self-timer and ran up the stairs about halfway and jumped up in the air with the broom to get the flying effect. It took a while to get the timing right heh ;). Camera - Nikon D3000; Lens - Nikon DX AF-S NIKKOR 18-55mm; ISO - 1600; Shutter Speed - 1/200; Aperture - Lo -Michael Strack


I shot this image tonight on a roof top in Chicago. I setup a single strobe (Calumet 7B) synced to my 5D Mark II on a tripod, set the timer and leaped from one roof top to the other! 5D Mark II with a Canon 17-40 f/4; Exposed for 8 seconds at f/5.6; Strobe at half-power; ISO 200; Mirror locked up. It was a fun shoot, little did I know, the rooftop that I was jumping onto was someone's apartment. After about 5 test jumps I heard some screaming and ignored it, after getting this final image the neighbors were throwing eggs up on to the roof at me. -Josh Billions

Canon T1i + Kit lens on a tripod; 30s exposure at F8 ISO 200, 18mm. Used a strobe to illuminate my location at the 2 second mark, and held that location for a short duration, then activated a light bar and dragged the trails for the remainder of 20 seconds. Shot in RAW and edits only made in Adobe Camera RAW. -Bobby Triantos

10mm / f.4.0 -Bryan Kelly-Austin


I used my 50 mm f/1.8 lens mounted on my EOS 5D. Exposure was 1sec @ f/22. ISO was set to 50. This is at one of my favorite places in San Diego to go shooting. -Joseph Baltazar

Camera: Samsung NV11 (point-and-shoot); F-stop: f/4; Exposure: 1/15 sec.; ISO: ISO-200; 7.8-39mm lens set at 38mm. I wasn't sure if multiple submissions were allowed (first time entering) but I thought that you could decide between the two better than I can. This was shot in a building on my campus that is not-quite-completed, going with the theme of running from authority (I may or may not have had permission to be in said building at night), which can be taken figuratively or literally I suppose. I just set my camera on a cardboard box (no tripod), set the timer to 2 seconds, and ran. The only editing done was adjusting brightness/exposure and converting it to black and white in Photoshop. -Joel Armstrong

For this shot, I used my Canon XSi on the 2sec timer with a Canon 50mm at f/1.4, ISO 100, and 15sec. I set the camera to shutter speed priority at 15s. I then ran from my camera holding a flashlight for about 10 seconds, then light painted my body for the rest of the exposure. -Kinta Maeda


Did the best I could with the images as I don't really have the savvy or the software to change pixels handy. I used a Panasonic DMC-LS70 using an intelligent iso mode I'm figuring the camara picked 200 or so? unsure really. -Max Rodriguez

Took this shot at the disney concert hall using my 5DmkII + Cactus triggers to trigger the flash set up on a remote flash camera right. I used a shoot through umbrella to diffuse the light a little... because of the security guards I had to put away the tripod so this was pretty much improvised. Touched up a little in Lightroom and that is it! -John Wood

Here is my homework! picture taken with Asahi Pentax; 50 mm lens (shutter 1/60, f / 3.2 , ISO 200)
.... I froze my feet taking this one, but it was worth it... Everything for a good pic! :) -Tisa


Camera: Nikon D40, AF-S Nikkor 18-55 DX stock lens. Picture data: shutter 1/60, f 3.5, program mode, focal length 18mm, flash on, ISO 200. We had a huge amount of fog in Columbus, Ohio on saturday night, so right when I got home from work I raced outside and set up this shot. I wasn't using flash at first and realized the camera was able to cut through the fog pretty easily, so I switched to just a quick shot with flash and saw it makes this pretty cool smoke-like effect! -Ryan Pena

I'm using a Nikon D40X with a 50mm lens (ISO 100; F6.3 & F8.0; shutter: 1/160 & 1/250), and I'm wearing a pair of Vibram Five Finger KSO's. My friends and I hiked up to the top of Mission Peak (Fremont, CA) and I had plenty of great photo opportunities to try out this challenge and the durability of my "barefoot" shoes. -Charles Espeleta

Simplicity is Key. Canon 5D Mark I with EF 28-135mm IS USM; Focal Length 28mm; Aperture f/6.7; ISO 200; Shutter 1/8" Irvine, California. I took this shot in Irvine, California. There is an outdoor shopping mall there that has hallways that no one walks down... except for the security guard that said "You can't be doing that right not." because apparently there is a better time to shoot there. I hate cities where the crime rate is so low they freak out when a guy with a camera is in a hallway. -Joel Dievendorf

I took this shot with my Nikon D200 on a Manfroto Tripod. The camera was set to ISO 100 with a 2 second self timer for roughly 2.5 secs at F3.5. I Used my Nikon 18-70 at 18mm. Once the shot was set up I set up my SB-800 up as a remote flash pointed back at myself and ran away from the camera. -Luke Emrich

So I was attempting to run from the camera and leap over a siderail, and unfortunately (or luckily) I jumped in such a manner that it looked like I was balancing on the rail. I used a Nikon D40 with a Nikkor 18-55mm lens. We shot this on the pathway leading to my dorm shortly after a campus-wide snowball fight. -Christopher Q Batchelder


Technique: Pre-Step 1: Walk to beach. Step 1: Set camera on railing Step 2: Set 2 second timer to take 2 pictures Step 3: Press shutter Step 4: DON'T FALL! Equipment: Nikon D5000 with a 35mm f1.8 lens. Picture Details: 1/250 sec. at f/8. Nerd Details: Camera set to program auto (lazymode), ISO 200, custom picture style, auto white balance, no flash. Confession 1: Picture was actually taken 4 seconds after the shutter was pressed because the timer was set to take 2 pictures, each after 2 seconds. 2 seconds was nowhere near enough time to get into the frame, so the second picture was chosen. I'm not a tightrope walker, I can't move THAT fast on that rail! Confession 2: I am an idiot (I blame it on using a stupid touchpad, I hate those things!) and accidentally overwrote my original file when resizing by clicking save instead of save as. So, no wallpaper size photo. sorry. :( So instead I have included a huge picture of a cow. I hope that helps. Oh yeah! picture was taken in Emerald Isle NC. And yeah, it really was foggy. Like could not see more than 100 yards foggy. Like everything was moist foggy. Oh and sorry if you don't like the word moist. -Cory Efland

This is my submission. Its a long shutter speed. I used my D90 with a 55-200 lens. The settings was at 1/3 second shutter and f22. I am wearing my Vikings Jersey after they won Sunday!!! He is fast! -Taurance Hall

I attached LED's to the back of my feet, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, hands, and head. Shot with a Canon Rebel XS with an EF 28-105mm f1:3.5-4.5 lens. I set the timer to 2 seconds and then set the shutter to an 8 second exposure. I shot at the widest lens setting, but cropped the final image a bit (doesn't look like i got very far from the camera in the 1st two seconds, but i think the overall composition's better than w/o the crop...). -Eric Kornblum


Set up tripod and (because it was a dreary day) had to set it at 400 ISO 5.6 at 1/8 second. I was on a suspension bridge so the bridge was going crazy and the whole thing was bouncing as I ran across it. -Stephan LaFrance
