Light Drawing / Painting - Because It's Just Cool




About: I work in a D.i.Y style superstore. I am not sure if that is a good thing or not, but it certainly perpetuates my interest in such areas. I enjoy high powered devices of any kind. I do not give in, ev...

I am taking liberties as to the pre-stated nature of slideshows to deliver "photos of what you made or did".

I finally got my camera into long exposure mode. Please take into account it's only 8 secs max exposure, so I had limited time to work. I did manage to get a few good shots though.

Just for those who missed it.

    This is my go of doing repeated 8 second exposures to one of my tracks. hope it gives you a few ideas.
