More fun with light painting…

I tried a different, more ghostly effect with the light painting app on my camera last night.
I built up these composite images by simply using a torch to illuminate myself against the background of a darkened room and I really like the effect.

I shall continue to experiment with the technique, but see what you think of my first few attempts at making phantoms of myself.

Playing with panoramics…

It used to be a popular prank when I was a kid
In the days when a slow panoramic shot was taken of the entire school by a patient photographer, a daring pupil from one end of the shot could run behind the assembled ranks of his fellow classmates, to reach the opposite end in time to appear in the photo twice.

Well, I thought I’d have a go at that this afternoon, with Audrey’s assistance, and here are the results of our experiment.

She’s always talking to herself, now I know how she does it.

Experiments in light painting…

Diary of an Internet Nobody.(Archive)

Time to play with one of the gadgets on my new phone’s camera; the “light painting” setting.
This allows me to use an open exposure to pick up light trails from car headlights, star trails tracking across the sky, or just me, mucking about with torches, glowing stars and cooker clocks (no, really) to create oddly beautiful photographic light sculptures.

Check it out, man.

Knowing me as I do, I’m sure I’ll be practicing with this over the weekend and you’ll probably be seeing further experiments in due course.
