Catching the Pop of Corn
What do corn pops look like? Like this. See my website for shot of the setup but overall I made quite a mess (but got to eat some of it). And also you can see a very cool shot where I captured the steam trail below.
NOTE: You can only do shots like this in full manual mode which means you have to learn how to manage your shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and lighting/flashes. Here a great article that will give you a head start!

It is the fast shutter speed challenge this week creative Framers! This means that you are going to have to look for something in motion to shoot.With a fast shutter speed, your camera’s shutter opens and closes very quickly. Only a small amount of light enters the camera with the result that moving subjects seem as though they are frozen in action. Think of a bird in flight, a gymnast paused in the air, a race car frozen on the track, a drop of water suspended forever in the air. You can decide to take your photo indoors where you will be able to create the motion and control the lighting, or you can go outside looking for action. The secret then is to be ready with your camera. Have your camera’s settings ready, anticipate the action, and then shoot! If your camera has burst shooting capabilities, this is the challenge to use it.
