Lightpainting

Lightpainted Dahlia - outside

I'm still on vacation and surfing around the internet last night brought me to a flickr site of lightpainting. I wasn't familiar with the process and searched around some more for instructions on how to do it. Since Helen has a fabulous garden in the back, I tried it. The weather wasn't good, so much fog that moisture accumulated on my lense -- and a little breeze to go with it, bad sign for a long exposure.

I think the technique has definite possibilities and I look forward to trying it again with another subject. This one is illuminated by a regular flashlight playing around the flower.

This is a gorgeous effect. This could entice me to learn to do proper photography. (Almost.)
