Painting with light

by Helen Hooker May. 12, 2012 5563 views

I had some time to spare this afternoon so I went down to Southsea to an exhibition of long exposure photography by Andrew Whyte [longexposures.co.uk]. I first came across Andrew??s work via articles in Advanced Photographer magazine and I love his creative approach to shooting the stars and creating artistic effects using flashes and torches. As well as showing his photos Andrew was also offering an interactive experience and I couldn??t resist creating a photo for today??s post with his help. My silhouette in this image was created by aiming one of Andrew??s flashguns at the wall, then I made the swirls of colour but wafting a light-sabre like torch (which automatically changes colour as you wave it) around, all during a twenty second exposure. I can see how this could become very addictive ?? it??s such fun experimenting and never knowing quite how the end result will turn out. Thank you Andrew for being so generous with your time and advice today ?? I can see I??ll be trying this again very soon!

Wow awesome effect! Did the flash fire at the beginning of the twenty seconds or at the end? It was very generous of him to help you do much, that's great to hear.
