This is my very first attempt at light painting an object and I must say it was very…unsuccessful as far as light painting goes.  The light beam was too wide so the back wall was illuminated which was not good.

I decided to get creative with it and messed around in GIMP (Photoshop equivalent) and with some filters…

Fellow photographer, Julie Powell, gave me a tip on how to pinpoint that light, so hopefully my next attempt will yield better results.  Can’t wait to try again!

Light painting, or light drawing, is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or to shine a point of light directly at the camera, or by moving the camera itself during exposure.

My daughters and I had fun experimenting with light painting recently. They used a small flash light to create these designs. We happen to catch my pup in the first one. 🙂
