So we all know that tomatoes are good for us, but how often do we take the time to think about the poor defenseless tomatoes we toss in the blender? I didn’t until I tossed one into the blender for this clip, its almost brutal what we do to poor food products in this blending machine of death (actually its a D model: tsk-9368AP, 13.99 at Walmart). This clip shows us what is actually happening to a piece of food as we put in the blender and mash the liquify button. If anyone was unsure as to why we don’t put our fingers in a blender, let this clip clarify the situation. The gash that it reveals as it spins around is probably my favorite bit of this one, along with the trail of juice it spews as it rotates. Watching this event live you saw none of this, all you saw was a whole tomato turned into mush. I tried some other fruit and vegetables but they didn’t turn out for one reason or another, this was by far the best of them. I plan to redo this shot next time I have a camera, only this time with a real set of lights. The coollights are nice for photography, but at these speeds the flicker becomes all too apparent. Hopefully I can get some good lights in the near future. If anyone is feeling particularly generous take a look at our B&H wishlist….ok, make that insanely generous as we all know B&H’s prices :) Anyway, enjoy the clip!Full Resolution download: TomatoInBlender.zip, JPG Sequence, 1.13GB $6.00
