You don’t take pictures, you make ones. 

It’s probably only lights in ceiling of a shopping mall. In an afternoon on a trip to Makassar, South Sulawesi last week we paid a visit to Trans Studio, Sunday (24/10). This is the biggest shopping arcade in East Indonesia.

Some of my fellows and I were chilling out after a fun photo shoot with Fotografer.net members in Makassar. Playing around with our BlackBerry camera, Harlim came to me and showed some fun photos. He twisted the BlackBerry to get a slow-speed effect on lights in the ceiling of Trans Studio.

Yes, we could not adjust shutter-speed in BlackBerry camera manually. You don’t need it actually, as long as we recognize that the light is dim enough for BlackBerry to automatically set itself shooting in slow shutter-speed. Then, here we go playing around with moving effect.

Then shortly, we got ourself busy twisting BlackBerry. We had some types, there were Onyx 9700, Javelin 8900, Pearl 3G 9105 and Gemini 8520. And we succeeded to twist them, had fun with some twisting photos.

All pictures here were taken by me with BlackBerry Bold 9700 Onyx. It’s simple, just twist the BlackBerry and press the shutter-release button while keep twisting it. It’s easy, you may easily make ones yourself. All pictures shown here are original, no digital editing.
