one hundred and fifty four by potato-juice one hundred and fifty four by potato-juice
Comedian and magician Michael Kent blows seemingly endless bits of paper into the air with a fan as the final trick of his act Wednesday as a part of the Program Board charity auction. The silent auction at Warriner Hall's Plachta Auditorium raised money for Program Board.

one hundred and fifty four by ~potato-juice is a prime example of capturing just the right moment and giving you "the shot". And check out the rest of their gallery, it's worth it. ( Suggested by elroyz and Featured by Ghouldaddy )

A really magical shot.

I've seen this magical effect (I think the name is Snowstorm in China) performed by some other magicians but I can't remember that there was one who looked this joyfull!

*fav*
Keep on the good work...

This must have been a difficult shot to catch. The motion is still there along with the action, energy and emotion. The color and lighting work well and make this a very nice picture. Definatly a favorite that I've seen today.

Is this magic trick where he talks about being in a snowglobe or something like that? Cause I'm pretty sure I did lighting for a show for him once...

i was hoping that your title came from the number of pieces of paper flying around, but i see all your other work is labeled similarly. great shot

This shot is quite a talent mix with a lot of luck. There is no way that u can controlle these pieces falling and where they will be. But amazingly just like a paiting made with presice care the particles are just where they want to be. And it eleminates which every the most interesting places on the photo. The face and the fingers are wonderfully captured with no disturbance at all. Wonderful work indeed.

What a capture! His face is just so...full of life! GREAT shot, perfectly timed. There's no paper covering sections of his face, either. It would've been weird to have a bit of paper over his nose or eye, but this is wonderful.

Cheers.
