I like to try doing new things all the time so How did I do this?

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2872/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1238437.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/2000-2999/2872/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1238437.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

#1 -- I used the LED light #1
#2 -- I setup the black background and also put the same on the floor to make sure NO light reflection bounce back when I am low at ground #2
#3 -- To have rose light up I kept the LED face down and turned on, now in this case the challenge that I had was that if I point the LED down the LED it self will show up in the camera as light up along with the rose
#4 -- To capture the movement of LED light, I had the LED face towards the camera
#5 -- to over come problem above at #3, I had hand cover the lit portion of the LED and left the light fall on the rose so that what Camera would see is the lit rose only and not the lit point of LED it-self
#6 -- face the hand part towards the camera and tried to hide the lit LED and let the light fall on rose
#7 -- This I couldn't put in the collage :), I am the model in the this shot, I had black pent and black t-shirt on and I was holding the rose with both hand such a way that hand shows up when light movement happens and when rose is lit because of black t-shirt, the light would show only rose lit up
#8 -- I placed my self and setup the camera (EXIF in the collage), had 10 seconds timer on. This is to make sure when to start the light movement
#9 -- Now the game begins, I ask my wife to start light movement behind me and when we have 5 seconds left in 30 seconds of exposure time (she was actually counting) turn off the LED light (to not show up in the camera as light movement), bring in the light in front on top of the rose and turn it on again


Simple right? :)

When my daughter saw what I am doing, she started saying, can I do it, pleaseeeee, can I pleaseee!!!

Setup of the project!

Wow, great idea... not that simple to get a perfect timing to all fit together.
Well done.
