another experiment with Christmas lights
« on: December 19, 2007, 08:05:13 AM »
Here are three photos I shot last night, out of the camera without tweaking.  The exposures were for 5 seconds around f/16 and f/22 while  rotating the camera and adjusting the focus simultaneously. 

So who's shooting their lights when they get home?  :)


The initial shot.  I might be on to something...


Next shot.  Yeah, definitely.


And there are colored lights too!

I've done 100's of these shots...  but these are pretty nice...  I like the middle one best...

For some real fun try some macro shots of sparks off a lighter...

Great idea!  That also reminds me of "orange-peel fireworks," which might be cool.

Guess what--there's a "Bic" group on flickr.  Who knew?

And Thank You for the idea!  What I especially liked in your picture is how the individual flint projectiles explode outward from their trajectories.  I didn't get as many of those in my first attempt, but one of them is almost perpendicular.  Vectors in action, baby!

[edit: this was a wide-angle shot, cropped... i also plan to take your advice and go macro]
