There are about 14 million people unemployed in the United States this month. If you take an average weight for each unemployed person at 200 pounds, the total unemployed weight is 2.8 billion pounds. Divide that by 2000 to get tons and you end up with 1,400,000 tons of unemployed people in the United States.
My first attempt at camera tossing
Aimlessly browsing around the internet I came across something called Camera Tossing. Sounded like the dumbest thing I ever heard of until I took a look at some of the results.
It is exactly what it sounds like. Take your camera-phone or camera, set a .5 – 2 second shutter speed and toss it in the air. Depending on the surrounding, lights, shutter speed, rotation, and a bit of luck you should get something at least as good as my photo. However, my first attempt is nothing like what others have captured. I only tossed my iPhone to get this image. I am sure if I ever work up the nerve to toss my DSLR I could get a better image. I cannot wait for Christmas when all the lights are up and colors are everywhere to see what I can get.
I took this image in my living room with all auto settings and a 0.5 shutter speed. I use an app called Slow Shutter by Cogitap Software.
Throwing your camera or phone is not for everyone, but when you see what it can capture I am sure I will hear about many dropped and broken phones or cameras (not my fault I am not responsible for how you abuse your electronics), but enjoy the results!
