Keeping in mind the verse that says,
"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." - Ecclesiastes 1:9

I tried something that was at least new for me. :-)

A few weeks ago I bought the smallest little LED flashlight I had ever seen. A friend's son hid the little light in his small hands, and we tried a few shots.

This might not do well as it is not some new earth-shattering technical wiz method, but what the heck. We both enjoyed doing it!
And I haven't seen it on DPC yet...

No Photoshop except auto-contrast, USM, and resize to 640

Taken with a mini blue reading or keychain light? Still looks cool to have the light shining forth from the hands. The bright spot on top is a bit distracting.
