1 PicADay Project: Day 363

Light Show

Now that I’m here near the end, I can’t seem to get any inspiration. I’ve stooped to light painting, or whatever you call it when you push the shutter button and shake the camera in front of lights. Not much skill to it, but sometimes you get some cool looking colors. Here’s one that I took of the dashboard lights in my car.

  1. What is this talk of nearing the end? You aren’t going to stop are you?!!!

    • No, not stopping… I’ve just got the blog fever and wanted to do a blog that is more of a magazine type layout with more stuff than just photography. I’ll include my photos but I want to do more. It’ll take me a couple of months proably to get it how I want it because I’m not familiar with the technical aspect of WordPress.org. I’ll be back and I might post a few photos along the way on here while I’m working on the other. I still want to meet you guys at Radnor maybe during Sept or Oct.

  2. Looks cool! Only two more days to go… don’t stress! 🙂

  3. I’m trying not to. On tomorrow’s post I say something about getting a really good photo for the last one. I plan on going to shoot Saturday ‘somewhere’ and get something good. I hope I do.

  4. Another beautiful image!

    I have to say I’m dreading what comes after 365. (I hate change.) Then again, it just might be good. Who knows what can happen once the Blog Fever has been diagnosed? 🙂

    I had heard the term light painting and didn’t know what it meant. I like it! 🙂

    • Yeah, I heard it awhile back and looked it up. People actually stand in front of lights or their TV and push the shutter button and then throw their expensive cameras up in the air and then catch them. Some of them say they use a mattress underneath so they harm heir cameras if they drop them. I first heard the term “Camera Tossing” and I thought to myself, surely that’s not what it sounds like, but it is. Go figure. I haven’t gotten the nerve or the urge to ‘toss’ yet. If you look up Camera Tossing or Light Painting on flickr you can find some awesome art and colors.

  6. I love light painting, however, you’re meant to keep the camera still and move the lights around. 🙂

    I posted a setup for this a while back…
