    Cool work Colleen!

  • Just trying it out Roy – was amazed at the result – got some magic ones, but think this one is quite good enough to show.
    Appreciate the lovely comment pal.

    Cool Creation !

  • Thanks Jon – it was great fun. Two kids were playing with very thick sticks that had been stoking the log fire when i caught them on camera. I was fortunate to have been told by a pro there and then how to create a strobe type effect. We practiced and the kids had great fun – amazed at the results. If you have not ever tried it you should sometime if you get an opportunity. :O) Ta for the fav too Jon.

    Ah…painting with light…this always creates some amazing and often unexpected shots…I love to see what comes of it, although I’ve never tried it myself.

  • Go on .. give it a go Lou. Let me know how you get on. You know more about it than me, so you’ll know you don’t need open flame or fire to do it – I went the dare devil route there. But have some nice ones of the electric light bulbs too. Have a great day Lou.
