Harness the Speed Force (make Your Hand Look Like the Reverse Flash's)

If you watch the Flash on CW, you will love this trick. This Instructable will show you how to take a picture of someone, and make their hand look like the Reverse Flash's. I use long exposure to make the hand look like it's vibrating. I hope you like it!

Step 1: You Need:

Either a smartphone or a camera with adjustable shutter speed. I use an iPhone with an app.

Step 2: Prepare

Either get an app that allows you to adjust the shutter speed of your smartphone camera, or figure out how to adjust the shutter speed on your real camera. I use the Slow Shutter app on my phone.

Step 3: Adjust the Shutter Speed

Make your shutter speed really slow, or open the app.

Step 4: Find a Model

Find someone who is willing to sit there waving at you for a little while. It helps if they watch the show ;).

Step 5: Position Your Friend

Have your friend/model sit or stand very still, except for their hand. Have them move their hand in a movement halfway between waving and vibrating it. Both of you will have to be pretty patient with this, as you will probably have to mess around with both the shutter speed and the movement of your friend's hand. Also, whatever your friend moves during the photo shoot will turn out blurry, so make sure the only thing moving is their hand.

Step 6: Be Patient

Just keep going, and be patient, and you will get a good photo eventually. You can play around with different things, you don't have to stick with the vibrating hand. Try other things, and have fun! I hope you liked my Instructable! Thanks for reading.
