Tuesday’s Tip: Wait. I blinked.

July 17, 2007

We’ve all done it.

After someone snaps your photo you say,

“I blinked.”

Then the friend or photographer or whoever has to check the LCD screen, zoom in and verify! But there is a trick! You can tell if you have truly blinked when the flash pops or not. If you see red or pink when the flash goes off, you blinked. If you see blue or green or white, you did not!

Why red or pink? Because you are seeing the flash through your eyelids.. filled with little capillaries of blood! Seriously, try it. But don’t kill your eyes in the process. It will just save you from being the annoying one who always follows every shot with, “Wait. I blinked.”
