Week 12 by Becky
Tried painting with light. The last time I painted with light was in 2002, using a Minolta SLR (film) camera, for a photography class that I took with my friend, Judy. That was fun. Decided to try it again with my Nikon D300s DSLR. This is a yellow daisy like flower. I used black velvet as my background and a small led flashlight. Set my f-stop to f32 and manually focused. This was all done in my home office. As soon as I clicked the shutter, I lit up the flower with the flashlight. Next time, I will try it someplace where it is pitch black (e.g., my closet or outside). I will play with this technique again.
