I'm interrupting my scenic photos of the valley for Donna's 'Personal Photo Challenge'. This month it's on Christmas, so I revisited my 'light painting' techniques of a year ago after we got the tree up (lights on, but not decorated) today. I'm pleased with the results!
All of these photos were taken with the camera just on Aperture. The camera was giving me about a one second exposure, but I hand-held the camera, and just moved it, either in a circle or back and forth, to get these effects. The final photo is different in colour to illustrate the effect of adjusting the white balance for indoor lighting. I actually like the lighting in all the others better, even if it was set for sunlight or cloudy. Very easy and fun photos to take.
