CLAME means 'Click My Name.' If you see it, click that users name!

Slowly, like water digging a hole in stone drop by drop, beard is growing to defy the conventions of everyday society.

What @C said... I'm speechless. This is the coolest thing I'm likely to see today. Instafave!

Yep. I'd love a CLAME explanation. But however you slice it, you got Kingfav'd by stingy kinger me.

This reminds me of a SORRY! piece. Also, if this is something explainable, it may just be the coolest thing I have ever seen photographed.

@JustJamey I followed the explanations in this youtube video that my father told me about a couple of days ago (CLAME). But instead of a cardboard background I used my face.

I would like to say that it was done in one take, but reality is that I have shot 176 photos. Around 5 of them are usable.

C says:
@flainez - your comment reminds me of how different digital photography is to traditional film photography. Can you imagine going through that many rolls of film to capture one shot?

The shot, in general, got a fave from me. Then I saw the refracted images of you in the water column/drop, and it was King time.

flainez says:
@all Wow, thanks a lot for all the nice comments! Really appreciated!!! :D

@MikeDeMonk well, I wanted to shoot it at 1/250 just like the video tutorial suggested, but I had to use the in-camera flash and then the camera changed the speed to 1/180, even in manual mode. I think that is related to the sync speed with the flash, not really sure. Fortunately, it was enough speed! :)

@mattyc that's a good question and there were two reasons, first, I didn't have this idea by then; my father give it to me this weekend... even if I had it I don't think I would have done it because during weekdays I don't really have enough free time. Yesterday and today were bank holidays here in Spain, so I had plenty of free time :)

@miguelito LOL, next time I have to include a dinosaur!

@mimsattack You should try it; it's really fun and not difficult, just time consuming. And the results are pretty cool. Another day I will try do something with other liquids, milk, coffee, I don't know... not for whiskerino but for my own collection.

@C you are right, with film this would have been EXPENSIVE! :)

Well, thanks once more to everybody!!!
