Colors in the dark… part 3… but maybe I should have called these: ‘lights in the darkness’…

a1

Is that an alien planet in a starless solar system? No, that wouldn’t be possible. A ‘solar’ system, by definition, has at least one star in it.

a2

Is that the ghost of Donald tRump’s brain? No, that wouldn’t be possible. He would have had to have a brain to begin with.

a3

Is that a flying saucer? No, not unless a really small one was flying around my kitchen last night while I was doing experiments with low-light photography.

a4

Actually, these are all photos of some pretty interesting objects, but that has nothing to do with the experiment.

But I decided, as long as I was standing around my kitchen in the dark with my camera, trying to use the fact that darkness makes the shutter stay open longer, which, combined with shaking the camera, produces some cool effects when you photograph colored lights, to try taking some pictures of other things…

I mean, other things than the spinning holographic light disks that I have been posting pictures of in the earlier posts in this series, like the one above.

So I did.

And I had fun and learned a few more things.

For those of you who made it this far down the post, and might even be reading the words, I used that base with the changing colored lights that goes with the glass jellyfish thing my wife bought me on Maui during our second honeymoon, and put some of the projects I made at my glass blowing lessons on it.

  1. Leaving you to your own devices may seem dangerous to those who don’t know you, Art. But, to those of us who have come to expect the creatively unexpected from you, we know full well that your beautifully weird and unconventional mindset will produce something more than just “interesting.” 🙂

    There never will be a finite number of ways to manipulate and work with light and color. Keep the weirdness coming, brother!
