Create No-edit Pop-art Style Pictures Using a Frisbee

This is an entry in the digital photography contest, so vote for it if you like it.

Using just a orange frisbee and a point and shoot camera you can easily create pop-art style pictures. The greatest part is that there is no editing required.

Step 1: Cut Down the Frisbee

First take the frisbee and break it, so that you have a flat area to work with, rather than having to cut through the ridge of the frisbee.  You can break the frisbee simply by standing on it or putting a chair leg over it and sitting on it.

You do not have to break the frisbee to take these pictures, cutting it down just makes it easier to carry around

Cut the frisbee down into a shape like in the first picture.  You can change the shape however you want, but it should fully cover the lens and have an extra part that you can hold without covering the lens.

Step 2: Camera Settings

The camera settings are pretty specific, and if the camera is not on these settings then the picture will not work (as well at least.)

To manipulate all these setting, put the camera on macro mode.

Iso- You can put the iso as low if you want because it is on flash (unless you want the picture to be grainy.)

- Although the pictues look the best when taken up close, make sure not to put the camera on macro or the picture will be mostly red.

Use as high of an exposure as possible.

-  Full power

Step 3: Cover the Flash and Take the Picture

Hold your new frisbee flash cover by the tab and cover the flash.  Take whatever picture your heart desires.

Step 4: Enjoy Your Fantastic Andy Warhol Style Pictures

Now that you've mastered the art of frisbee photography, go out and take some great pictures.

    i love the picture of the chandelier. ps Andy Warhol did silkscreens of pictures previously taken.

    you can get a very similar, but more reddish effect if you cover the flash with your finger. contrarty to what you may believe, instead of blocking the flash, the light is simply diffused through the tiny blood vessels in your finger, turning it red

    Haha, that was actually how I discovered this.  I accidently covered the flash with my finger, and then started experimenting with other things.

    Nice Job, but I have a camera which can change bulbs to any color, so i don't need a frissbee, still ncie job, but putting your finger there kills blood cells, light radiation
