Painting with Light
The Wirral Photography Group, have been having fun lately. They have been experimenting in darkened rooms, bumping about and tracing colourful trails in mid-air ! Using simple objects, they have experimented with exposure times between 2 and 30 seconds, to produce images illuminated via various light emitting tools – such as LED key rings, novelty toys and laser pointers of varying colours. The trick mis to keep the light source moving, at first painting the scene with one colour ( such as green ) and then accentuating this using the smaller pin point light sources ( in red etc ) to create the swirls and trails.
