Who ate all the pies?

By davey_griffo
As usual, an argument broke out in the Nomates household. Billy's pies keep going missing, & everybody's denying taking them. So he stuck a camera in the fridge, & caught Bertie (you can tell by the t-shirt).

A fight ensued, in which Billy tried to stick his hand down Bertie's throat to retreive his pie, & the rest either tried to get him off, or took sides & started their own punch-up.

This idea came from an article in last month's Practical Photography. I used the Fuji, as I didn't fancy getting my D-SLR all steamed up in the cold fridge. I needn't have worried, as it's a frst free jobbie, so there's no moisture inside. But if you give it a go, you may want to consider this.

Thanks fellas.

Debu - The lens was set on it's widest setting, about the film equivalent of 24mm. I also had the camera as far back in the fridge as I could, as they are only so deep. So this is as wide as it was possible to get.

Very, very funny and well executed.
I see the Nomates use crumbless pastry - I could never manage such a photo myself, partly because I would insist on eating the pie before taking the picture Smile

I read the same article Davey, this has been very well executed with your own mark on it.

Best Matt

Funny and original. I don't think I'd have room for a camera in my fridge though...
