Macro Monday

My hubby and I took a Photography Seminar a couple of weekends ago. One of the Seminars was on Painting with Light. The instructor talked about the process, showed us his photos, and then demonstrated the technique for Painting with Light. He let a couple of the students also try it and I was lucky enough to try the process. I learn better by trying, or doing so it was great to get the opportunity
I immediately went home, and took over the spare bedroom and set it up so I could Paint with light in my house. This photo is the first photo I tryed this on. I think for the first shot at it, its okay!
I have so many other things around this house that is going to get painted!!

I love it! What a creative subject. Light is a big topic in art. I'm always asking my kids about their drawings - what is the light source(s)?

I used garbage bags over the windows to really blacken the room, and turned the lights out. I focused the photo, turned the lights out and used a small flashlight to provide the light over a long exposure. So painted with light with a flashlight.

Hi Lorna, Wow, this is a brilliant first attempt! I knew of this technique years ago but only used it in a big studio. I'm impressed you did it in your home. Well done!!!
