Playing With Light Again

Frank over at Dutch Goes The Photo had posted some pretty cool pictures a while ago and I just had to know how he did it. He was kind enough to re-post some tutorials for everyone to learn from.

Here are the links if you want to try it too:

Abstract Photography: Part  one, Part two and Part three.

Even though I tried it with light, you can do this with flowers or anything else. I know I will be playing around with different objects over the next few days! Thank you, Frank!

Other than slight cropping, there was no editing and no flash was used.

The first one is our Christmas Tree that has very tiny white lights on it:


All of the following photos are of a dollar store fiber optic spray:

Just a little movement in these ones.

Playing With Long Exposure

I wanted to try a night shot of towns and traffic at night using long exposure. I played around with different settings but the one I liked best was a 10 second shutter speed, ISO 100. I put the camera on the dashboard as we were driving home.

Other than cropping some of them, there is no editing. It was fun to try. Not really what I like for photography. But I do want to try my hand at everything.  🙂
