Rhino! (Rhinos are very powerful runners, despite their large/heavy size. Can reach up to 45 mph in 5 seconds, with how much they weigh, they could knock over a safari truck. -Learned this on my safari excursion in the Huluhuwe Resort in South Africa)

Blurred Long-Exposure Portraits Showing Dancers in Motion

The entire series was shot using a Canon 5D Mark II and a 35mm f/1.4 lens, and the resulting photographs were cropped to a 4×5 ratio during post. Each of the images is a simple exposure taken in a very dark room, with a single soft light source shining down on the dancers from above. Wadman used a 3-second shutter speed with his lens stopped down to f/11 (to prevent the depth-of-field from being too shallow, since he was aiming for motion blur rather than out-of-focus blur).
