Experimenting with light trails again…this is my fourth attempt at a smiley, and the only one that worked! It looks so smug…

My name is Alice and I am a student at Cambridge University. I like taking pictures of anything and everything and it’s always been less about the details of technique and more about capturing something beautiful for me.

I hope you enjoy my work

    hahaha, i wouldnt have a clue, i’m going to try long shutter times next to get that fuzzy water affect on rivers, but think i might give your artistic lights a go too, looks like fun!

  • Shutter times? oh them…yeah, i just click in a dark room/outside at night and hope something happens.
    Be careful-its’ so easy to get hooked once you start!
