G'day jabtas...im new to photography (about a good year of practice with the digital) but have wondered how you did this.

I know its a longish exposure but why cant i see the young fellas hand exposed along with the sparkler other than where the shutter stopped the capture ?

Hi mate

I keep getting asked that question, and the only idea I have is that the flash fully illumanated the scene (first curtain) then the sparkler was so bright that it put the background in deep shadow, which couldn't regitser on the sensor due to the bright image that was already captured.

According to the EXIF data the exposure was 1 second, considering it was a handhel shot I am very pleased with the result.

A long time ago I did a shot like that in 35mm and had the same results. The sparkler showed all of the motion, but I looked still. I was always surprised that it worked.
