#LongExp (Painting With Light)

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? These are some #LongExp (osure) shots that I did using the flash on my smartphone as a light source. All were done using a Canon EOS 1000D and a tripod (of course). I love how I got an effect that most people need to use Adobe After Effects to create. I also love how you can see depth and speed of the light in the two-dimensional photo.

Q&A with Clint Milner

Abi Mark Ryan Garvey asked:
Hi Clint New to the photography world :-) My hubby has bought me a Nikon DSLR (have always used Nikons) My first DSLR, been practising on a bridging camera for a couple of years. I'm looking forward to trying this :-)
Clint Milner answered:
Good luck! They're fun and you never know how they'll turn out!
JackieGross asked:
I like the way the light dances across the picture.
Clint Milner answered:
Thanks for looking! These were super fun to take :)
Maria Taylor-Crowther asked:
can you tell me how you got the lights dancing through the picture? i'm new to photography and have always wondered how this was done!
Clint Milner answered:
Yeah, sure! Well I had my camera on a tripod and I set the shutter speed to 30 seconds, low ISO. I clicked the shutter and then ran around my yard swinging my arms while the LED light on my camera phone was turned on. Because the ISO was so low, it didn't see my legs or body in the picture (I also was wearing black) but just the light in the photo. To be honest, it was an experiment and it worked! I think this was the first one I took, and all the other versions weren't as good as this! Thanks :)
