So... after the fine arts challenge, I realized that I couldn't really hold the camera yet. So I needed to mount the camera on a tripod and not lean over, bend, readjust... that was a really bad idea (as seen by the fine arts challenge)
So I looked through ideas and realized that painting with light was my best option.
It was a lot harder than I thought! First, the light beam was too intense. So I covered the small flashlight with a kleenex. It was a bit better, but still not soft enough. So I poofed out the kleenex away from the flashlight and that was better.
But then I couldn't really see what the beam was illuminating! I kept having light pour out of the side of the bottle and completely miss the glass. I finally got that to something decent, and then had to deal with the glass and bottle not showing enough. So I did a 15 second exposure, used 10 seconds to paint the light flow and then 5 seconds to simply pan over the glass and bottle so they would show more.
Since I'm still working with one arm, I couldn't figure out how to hold the bottle. (Plus, I wouldn't have been able to hold it steady for as long as I needed), so I put the bottle in a plastic bowl so it could lean by itself. That's why part of the bottle is missing.
Thanks for the comments!
