Black Powder & Photography.......

Postby DuncaninFrance » Tue Feb 27, 2018 5:28 am

As well as being a gun nut I am also a serious photographer. I was Vice President of my local club from it's inception 4 years ago until this year when I stepped down and became a pure committee member.

Last night we had a practical evening of "Chronophotographie"

Chronophotography is defined as "a set of photographs of a moving object, taken for the purpose of recording and exhibiting successive phases of motion"

I took my Baker rifle with a view to giving them the chance to record the firing sequence. It was so cold that only 5 members came outside to try it but there were some good images.

Here is the first one., I am waiting for others to send me their results and I will post them when I get them........

So... how did they do the photo? Put the camera in B and after the flash in the pan close it?

Those are cool photos!! In the last 2 it looks like it is flashing right in your face...... :shock:
Is it actually going out to the side, or is it just the bright light on your face??

Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.

That is flashing at 90º to the barrel Vern. It is the powder in the pan + the start of the ignition in the barrel escaping through the touch hole.
