Light up my life

I tried my hand at light painting for the first time tonight…with mixed results. The first thing I discovered as I was fiddling about with my camera is that I cannot control the shutter speed. The Clunky Monkey had let me down and any ideas of doing incredible things like this were quickly put aside…

However, I’ve never really used ‘created’ light in photo’s so I gave it a crack anyway – I think I may have even learnt a thing or two.

After many grainy photos in ‘night mode’ I grumpily went into ‘program’ to fiddle about with the settings I can control and changed the ISO to 400. Using a little book light to highlight one of my little roses I finally got my first decent shot.

First roses I’ve grown since I lives with my parents 🙂

Mucking around with placement of light and shadows got me a few more good shots.

Hopefully in the future I’ll upgrade my camera and I can have a go at the ‘real thing!’

Thanks for reading,
