light writing

We took off last weekend for one final summertime extravaganza- fun in the sun at Lake Powell. Among the many activities we enjoyed during the daylight hours such as swimming, tubing, wake boarding, kayaking, hiking, relaxing, overeating… one of the mandatory evening activities included a crowd pleasing favorite- fun with flashlights. All of these pictures were shot with a 10 second exposure. The red/pink light was created with a small piece of red gel taped over the flashlight. The wings were made by a person standing behind the angel and drawing toward the camera, switching the light off when finished. The heart was made by a second person pointing the red flashlight at the chest for the full 10 seconds. A third person shined a white light on the angels face for just a moment before turning the flashlight to draw the halo.

10 second exposure. 3 helpers we used making this devil, two behind- one making the trident and the other making the horns and tail. One helper in front exposing the face for a second or two.

Angel with a broken wing, beware, light writing is addicting. Before you know it you’ll have taken 100 picture trying to get it just right.

Group photo, 10 second exposure, 2 helpers in back making swiggles, one if front exposing each face as quickly as possible.
