This was shot with around a 30 second exposure time at night. I popped the flash a couple times on the swing.

I don't find the subject terribly appealing, but the tchnique is superb. Totally spot on.



Try that in or around a Gothic style church, I think it would work a treat.

Sorry for the very late reply, but I find that shot to be phenominal. I don't know how but you took an ordinary and typically boring object and made it intriguing. To me that's the essence of not only our but every art. Kyle

I agree, this is a very good shot but its not painting with light:-)
Painting with light is literal, taking a flashlight and very literally painting the subject like a paint brush....heres an idea, try it with 2 different colored lights.
Still love this shot

Thanks for the comment, Wagaboo. You're right, I guess painting with light would be closer to this:



or this:





All done on the same night. I just found the swing a 'tad' more artistic.

The swing came out very well, that is a technique that can come in handy from time to time. The two shots done with flashlights is something I have never seen done before with a camera, very cool.

Now, where are those fresh batteries I just bought for home.

Have you noticed the current 'Light in motion' topic across in the 'Biweekly Challenge' forum?...

I've been experimenting with light painting too, here's one from a camping trip, I'm working on trying to highlight a shoreline but at the same time keeping the stars still bright, you can just barely see the big dipper
