Flash Bulb and an Ansco Camera by 

I found this Ansco camera at the Otten Brothers indoor Flea Market and it brought back memories of my childhood. Every Christmas my mother would pose my siblings and I around the Christmas tree and we would wait for the bright light of the flash bulb to fire. My mother still poses us around the Christmas tree but now that we are adults the tree is barely visible behind all the bodies. The flash bulbs and film are long gone. Now she aims a small digital camera at the group.

This image is lit with a flash light. The crazy lines on the right side are from the light as I moved it around the image. Lighting with a flash light is addicting as it create lots of surprises.

I am photographer and mixed media artist. Much of my work is a back and forth process where I use my photos in my mixed media images and my mixed media textures and colors as layers in my digital photos.

    Love the way you’ve done this with the ‘crazy lines’ appearing to be effected by the bulb

  • Thank you for the feature. I’m glad you liked the ‘crazy lines’. I had a lot of fun with the flash light and the surprises that came from this type of lighting.
