Lightwriting

Lightwriting is the art of creating abstract designs or shapes with light. Its done using a very slow shutter speed like 10 seconds or more and this creates a stream of light across the frame. My friends and I experimented with this technique and this is what we came up with..






This is how you do it;
1. setup your camera on the tripod at eye level and focus on the subject
2. use the Shutter priority mode and use shutter duration of 10 seconds or more
3. you can use the remote to release the shutter or set the timer so that there's minimal blur
4. use a flashlight or portable light source and draw shapes in the air.

Nicely done
Can you tell me the source of the light, were you standing with it behind the camera or behind your friends ?
