|I'm officially hooked on Painting With Light. After learning how to do it, which it isn't that difficult, I pretty much was putting misc. objects in front of the camera, turning off the lights and going at it with the flashlight...I think my wife is getting really sick of walking around all night in the dark...lol...
So this is my Father-in-Law's pond he made. Beautiful area to shoot I thought, and try out my new favorite thing to do. It was really difficult trying to get the shot focused. I put as many lights as I could and kept using the flash to try and get it as focused as I could. Then when I got it just right. Turned out all the lights, and set the timer for 30 Sec. and ran to the pond. Used a flashlight with a with a custom aluminium foil "snood", as they call it, to trace the water, started at top and worked my way down. It was very slippery because it was raining like crazy about 10 minutes before I got there. Tried about 20 shots. Thought this was the best. Hope everyone likes, and like always, contsructive criticism welcome.
