Love - Light Painting

I finally got around to having a go at light painting tonight.
It's a lot of fun, but it's pretty tiring after about 20 x 30 second exposures and waving your arms around like a lunatic :) Writing reversed accurately in the air takes a bit of forethought too.

unedited, apart from being cropped and framed.

how do you do it without being in the shot?..or can you like move out of the shot before it's done?

I guess I was just moving too much for it to pick me up. If I'd been still for more than a few seconds you would see me.

You did that reversed?!
That's fantastic :clap:
violetsteel's avatar
Yup. From behind, so I still started with the L but wrote mirrored. Like if you wrote on the inside of a glass window. :)

Yeah I've done it before, was just astounded at how well you did it :thumbsup: :aww:

Can't you just write it normal and then flip the picture horizontally in photoshop? Anyhow, nice picture! I love that writing...
violetsteel's avatar
Sure, but that would be cheating :)
