Electric Daisies

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Electric Daisies
Electric Daisies
Camera was set on Bulb, F16 for about 20sec's. A kids sparkler was then used to 'paint' the flowers. Any comments welcome. A first attempt!

What a great idea! I think it turned out quite well. I like that you can still see the color of the daisies...it really seems they are exploding! I hope that you will experiment some more with this sparkler idea.

Thanks 4 all the lovely comments. This is when I wish I had digital, as it takes so long so see the end result! Getting there though! In the meantime, this was another attempt (amongst about 50 others :)

What category did you enter this in? It seems like you could put it into flowers or special effects. Try entering it again. It's an outstanding shot. So creative!

THanks for your encouragement Amanda :) You had the right idea, was very chuffed to see my FInalist email - 1st One!! I've since gone digital & wow.... I've entered another one from my gallery - "Gerbera Aura Daisy" so, I'll hold thumbs for next month :) Thanks again!

And you're asking for advice on exposure??!!

Great creation: I last saw a "light painting" like this years ago, a building after dusk photographed with the camera on bulb and the subject lit by someone walking around (and iside) it seting off a flashgun at strategic points. As you can see, it impressed me enough to remember for a long time...but this is much better: the concept, composition and execution are all terrific!

LOL David :) This was actually shot on film, when I really didn't know a lot!! It was part of a course we were doing, and I only saw the result once the film was developed. I need to try to do it again on digital, then I'll know I got it right!! Thanks for the kind words though!!

This is an awesome picture! So different and creative. One of these days when I retire, hopefully I will have time to try a lot of the ideas I am finding on BP!

Retire??!!! By the time that happens, I'll be too old and shaky to hold my camera, and will really have to rely on autofocus!! Thanks for your comment Debbie - keep experimenting :)
