Night Writer

My son is often flexing his creative muscles... His 'weight room' is typically made up of bits and bytes and the melodies he taps out on his keyboard... The other night however, he decided to dapple in a new medium... Photography.

My boy is not the type to merely point and shoot... If he's going to dapple in something there must include a creative twist... The picture above is the 'twist' he was going for... 'Night Writing'... He told me that he read about the technique online and decided to give it a go using my camera and a tripod. It may be difficult to tell by the size of the photo above, but that's my sons face in half-shadow on the right. He stood in our backyard at 10:00 a night, set up the tripod, turned up the f-stop on the camera which held the shutter open for a longer period of time. He then took his ultra-bright LED flashlight and waved it around, ultimately ending with the flashlight illuminating half of his face. He then very thoughtfully went next door to the neighbors house to let them know they needn't be worried by the odd light flashing around their backyard, he was just experimenting.
