Default Shooting my lens :(

I know I haven't posted in a while, married life has kept me quite busy lately
Today, 1/1/2016 I decided to try something a little bolder with my high speed photography... shooting towards the camera.
I decided to use my D50 and 18-105mm lens - two items not worth all that much these days.

I used the sound activated flash trigger.



Halfway through I got too adventurous and you can see the pellet heading straight for the camera in this shot.



It hit the filter which I threw away and then adjusted my angle.

This one came out pretty well. D50 iso200 f11 2 seconds.



Here is the video of the lens getting shot

Thanks - I'll try to post more - it's just that married life means spending more time on other places besides the forums

Thanks, I also did a test to see what the front element of a lens can handle

Interesting video clip Desmond.
Looks like the front element of that lens is quite tough.
I usually keep a UV filter on my lenses to avoid accidental damage.

I'm starting to think more and more that a UV filter is more likely to cause damage when it breaks than simply not having one.

Good work and some great images. Are you using the sound of the gun to trigger the lights?
