Head’s up: this week, I’ll be attempting to capture “Don’t you wonder sometimes about Sound & Vision,” a line from David Bowie’s ‘Sound and Vision’ from theLow album, for the sliproject.

I don’t expect to capture it properly, which is why I’ve given myself at least 998 more tries…

This is a desktop speaker with its cover off and 3 light sources battering it into beautiful submission. I hoped the speaker would vibrate noticeably: alas. Perhaps it was song choice? I played The Bad Plus’s cover of Iron Man (if you haven’t ever heard it, head to youtube… you can thank me later) at quite a high volume, and I could feel the air around the speaker vibrating, but couldn’t capture that vibration with the camera, so I focused on vision instead, and just made it sorta pretty.

I like that the circle with the two eyes sorta looks like a cheerful frog or something.

So this one was fail, but I’ll try again tomorrow. Whoo!

D7000. Nikon 75-150mm f/3.5 Zomb-E Series. ISO100, 15 seconds (ApMode), f/3.5, -1 EV. Mild-to-Medium processing in Aperture.

Oh… light provided by a large window, a tungsten bulb under a large yellow shade, and one of the LED Light Pipe things, hence the dark blue, golden yellow, and pale blue stripe on the left…
