Light writing, The Signature in the dark with a bit of red blur added. A winter photo idea.
On Sunday I decided that it was time to pick up the camera again. The problem was the weather was not just wet, it was cold. Not many reasons to go out and shoot. So I went for the alternative option – shoot something inside.
I’ve always wanted to try some light writing photography. It’s a lot harder than one thinks… but not for the reasons one thinks. Photography itself is pretty simple, what requires a bit more work is being able to write properly. The heart above, which I thought would be a nice photo before Valentines was one in thirty and it took a while to get it looking like that.
To take these photos I had two lights. A flashlight for the writing and a large LED light from my son that changed color for the background. By mixing the two it got an interesting effect.
Happy valentines everyone, share some of your winter photography ideas in the comments below with tips.
