Woah... It's been a while since I posted. In all honesty I forgot that I even had a blog. Since I don't have a kick-butt camera like my dad, I just haven't felt motivated to post, because I haven't felt motivated to take pictures in the first place.
And then my photography teacher introduced a new unit: Light Painting.
To make a light painting, you will need:
- a tripod
- at least one flashlight / glowstick / sparkler / high power phone screen
- a dark room / nighttime backyards with little light
- the ability to adjust the shutter s
peed on you camera.
- space to jump around like a moron as you paint.
- Set the camera on the tripod after adjusting the shutter speed.
- Snap the photo. You can also put on a timer, so you can have some time to set up.
- After you click the button (for lack of technical terms), turn your flashlight around and, essentially, do interpretive dance around your backyard.
- While you are dancing, hope that the neighbors don't decide to look out a window and see you pirouetting around your backyard, alone, with a flashlight in one hand.
- After a reasonable amount of time, shuffle over to your camera and check the picture.
- Exclaim in excitement.
You will end up with something like this.
