Creative Way To Shoot Portraits?


A photography studio based in Canada (2D Photography) created a Rube Goldberg machine to take photographs. A what machine? A Rube Goldberg machine, which is defined on Wikipedia as:

a deliberately over-engineered machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction.

The studio began construction on it in January and it is finally here in full working order. This is one of the most difficult of such machines I have ever seen I think. It is incredible to watch. You can get the full behind the scenes story about it on at 2D Photography’s site. It has also been mentioned at Huffington Post and was a topic of discussion in this weeks episode of This Week in Photo.
