Light moves… part 1…

I should have called this ‘workin’ on those light moves’, like a play on the song ‘Night Moves’. Obviously, these are just more of those photos I take where I use the long shutter opening in dim lighting to move the camera around while pointing at lights at varying distances, to see what I end up with.

I took all of these with my real camera when I brought it to work last weekend, to my job as a private security guard at a bio-pharm research lab.

There are a lot of lights around, at various distances.

These aren’t as exciting as the ones I took when I was visiting my older daughter in New York City, but still…

I have about two more posts worth of these. I might save the best few and do some digital magic with them, but not before I get to the pictures I took at the beach last night.

    Light-painting is a very cool art form. I hope you’ll explore it in depth and share your results.
