They take me places.

This was an idea that came to me suddenly like a lightbulb above my head. Dunno what you guys will think of it, but I like it. These are actually my work boots. One of the most important things I wear.

My first atempt at light painting. PURELY fun. :)

Full view for full enjoyment.

Hmm, you mean, you would like to know my secrets?! It's pretty simple....

Basically the ingredients are, 1. MOST IMPORTANT, an imagination that functions properly! 2. A camera capable of doing at least a 10 second exposures (just so you have adequate time to work. 3. Tripod and lastly 4. a light source.

I used a mini Maglite for the light source with the reflector head unscrewed so that the lightbulb was completely exposed. Camera on tripod, of course, set the shot up to how I liked it with positioning of boots and such, then turned off all the lights. I had a black sleeve shirt with a black glove on, I don't know how much of a difference it makes, but I like to think it does help keep your hand from being captured. I set the self timer just so I could position myself without worrying about the shutter button, and *click* start painting!

Hope that's what you meant by divulge.

as long as you can controll the shutter speed, and can get it to do about 10 second exposure, then you can do it. ;) you just need a tripod and an imagination :P
