Light Painting…in a grave yard…at midnight
Fin and I have said that we would try this Light Painting thing out sometime, last night decided to go to a local grave yard and see what we could come out with. After a lot of running around and almost tripping on grave stones, we were pretty happy for a first try. We also decided to head down to a marina near the lake…had a ton of fun at both places and learned a lot. All light, other than the sky (and lake reflecting the sky) is from a flashlight.
Technical: set up my wide angle lens on a tripod with a 30 second exposure (expose for sky, everything else goes black) and then ran around with a Mag Light trying to light up as much of the detail as I could in 30 seconds…plus lots of trial and error.
