Camera Fun with Light Painting

Well it is all camera fun to me. I love my camera...moment of silence for the love of my camera.............ok.

Now I guess it is really also the love of light. When I started taking photos I really started to notice the most important thing about photography...Light.

How it falls, how bright it is, how dim it is.

so the other night durring my 2am photo shoot with Harry's jeep I was playing with light...a flash light

Photobucket
SS 12, f 4.5, 250 ISO, 17 MM

I set my camera on my tripod (this won't work without one) and set a long shutter speed and I "painted" the edge of the jeep with the flashlight only.
I am actually in this picture but because I was running as fast as I could and no light was actually shining on me, I don't appear in the exposure.

This works really cool with colored LED lights too the camera just soaks up the light.

SS 21, f2.8, 250 ISO, 17MM

the next night Harry tried his hand at a little light painting too...can you see his feet in three different places spelling his name? Every thing that has light falling on it will illuminate.

a car ofcourse, nothing in our house is complete without something with wheels..

So go grab your camera, tripod and a flash light and get creative! I would love to see what you come up with, I'll even post your photos if you wish. Happy Shooting!
