The digital camera age has sprouted some very interesting trends in photography. One of those trends is called the Camera Toss Photography or Kinetic Photography. This involves setting your camera to very low shutter speeds, maybe around 1 or 2 seconds, then throwing it in the air just as it’s about to take an exposure. Then you catch it before it hits the ground. Usually this is done at night near some sort of light source. The result is a fantastic array of colorful patterns that looks strangely Windows Screen Saverish.
Many critics are bewildered by the fact that someone would actually throw their cameras in the air and risk damaging their equipment. I personally would never use an expensive camera for this, but if you could pick up and inexpensive point and shoot, you should definitely give it a try. Also I highly recommend all my photography competitors to do some camera toss photography with their professional Cameras, in fact give it like 1000 tries.
The thing is that the camera toss photography is a huge phenomenon in the photography world. There are whole communities and websites dedicated to this art form. So if you don’t mind breaking your camera, and want to get some sweet shots that you can brag to your friends about, then I believe the camera toss photography is just for you.
