Light painting

Not wanting to be put off by the lack of light at this time of year, I’ve been using evening dog-walks as an opportunity for light painting, suitably equipped with camera, tripod, torch and two flashguns with coloured filters.

The cemetery seems a little contrived for this sort of thing, but it was there, and added a different subject matter to woodland trees.

All these shots are taken by leaving the camera on a tripod, taking a long exposure, whilst running about lighting up things with the flashguns and waving a torch in the air. The dog seems to think it’s tremendous fun, and has nearly brought the whole thing crashing down on more than one occasion as he runs back to the camera after me…
