Chris Wage explains how he shot that photo and created the animated .gif

Yesterday, on del.icio.us/rexblog, I pointed this animated gif shot and created by Nashville blogger and photographer Chris Wage (who has a day-job, as well, but I know him from Nashville blog meetups and by following his awesome photo-posts.). On his Flickr post of the photo, I asked if he’d explain how he shot the photo(s) and created the animation. He was nice enough to explain it here. He says, “it was probably less complicated than you may think.” Yeah, right. (I’m inspired, however, to attempt this some day,) He left out the part about how not to get electrocuted in the middle of a thunder storm in downtown Nashville.
