light painting.

so one of the new things i am really wanting to try with my new camera is light painting. my sister told me about this awesome technique this past weekend as she know much more about the details of photography than i do. she explained how it works and i have been looking up various things on the web about what settings to use and different things you can do. i tried it for the first time last night (not whole heartedly mind you, just a quick, let's see if this works) and i caught a photo of myself shining a flashlight into the camera. boo. so i am going to keep testing it tonight and over the course of the weekend in hopes of at least starting to get it. i will post next week and let you know how it went!!

anyone else have experience with this?

  2. Lily,

    I wish I could take credit for the photos, they are beautiful huh? Keep checking back as I will be sharing my trials and triumphs regarding this interesting form of art, in addition to tips and camera settings and such. My first attempts were this weekend, so should be sometime this week!
