Over the holidays I was enjoying the Christmas decorations on all the houses, lawns and trees. I decided to do some light painting.
Usually with light painting one moves the light source but for immobile subjects one has to move the camera to get the same effect. It is also not so intuitive how to move the camera to get a specific effect.
So, I had to muddle through. I started out with a 1 second exposure of a very neat house on Kincardine West.
Interesting in a jagged sort of way. I increased the exposure to 2 seconds and moved the camera more smoothly and got image this.
I don’t remember where I got images 3 and 4 but they are at 2.5 seconds each and with similar camera motions and they clearly have lit deer “feeding” on the lawn.
I ended up on Dominion South and got images 5 and 6 both at 1 second each. As long as the fingers don’t freeze one could go on all night with this stuff!
