Acrobat makes people throw cameras

…but in a good way. John Dowdell discovered that the swoopy, groovy packaging art for Adobe Acrobat 8 was created by tossing cameras into the air, using a long exposure to capture motion.  Check out the story on the Camera Toss blog.  More camera-tossing action is all over Flickr: here’s a slideshow, and images from Jens Ludwig (whose shots are among those to grace Acrobat) are here.

    I noticed that the author of the “Check out the story” isn’t happy with people that want to label art either. Why not just call the whole shooting match pixplys? It’s defined as any image that is, or once was, pixels that were diligently used. (Diligent as in, with persistence and intent.) Dump the whole “Graphic” vs. “Fine”, “is a photo Art?”, etc. and just let the experience define the effect.
