It’s time for a new theme, a new photo project, for Jen and I. Jen came up with the first one, trees, and she also came up with this second one – painting with light. It is a very creative theme that can be interpreted in many exciting ways. There is a ”discipline” of sorts within photography when it comes to painting with light where you use long exposures and create shapes or effects using a light source. There are some pretty cool stuff out there.
Here is a tutorial on how to make foreground subjects appear. Really cool!
You can also use your lightsource as a ”brush” and make cool effects. Here is a tutorial of showing that.
Plus of course you have your own imagination! This is a really cool theme – thanks Jen 🙂
My first experiments here playing around at home with a torch. Bulb mode on camera and aperture 32 to make it as dark as possible. These images are experimental more than anything else – first attempts. It will be fun to experiment with this and learn more!
Behind the light
Check out Jen’s photos on her blog. I am so excited to see what she comes up with. She is the artist of us two, or rather she is the artist period :), so she will create magic with this theme I think!
I love the tutorials, and your photo of the heart- so cool! You have inspired me to go get a torch to play with 🙂 I think this new subject of ours has lots of scope to experiment- am looking forward to seeing what we come up with over the next few weeks xxx
When you start playing with that torch you will create the usual magic! Can’t wait to see it! 🙂 I love this subject. Gives room for so many interpretations. Hugs!
