Lousy Paint Job

Light Painting

Light Painting

This is my first attempt at light painting.

In total darkness, the camera is focused on the subject with the aperture wide open.  The shutter is set for a time release, so it stays open until you manually close it.  While the shutter is open a light source “paints” the subject.  The light is the only thing that shows up in the picture.

Hmmm, I need a steadier hand and waaaay more practice.

Thought for the Day:  Don’t think about making art, just get it done.  Let everyone else decide if its good or bad, whether they love it or hate it.  While they are deciding, make even more art.         Andy Warhol
