I went camping with some friends last month, one of whom does some experimental photography. One night we stayed up late to do some time lapse photography. We left the camera shutter open while we “painted” with flashlights. Since it was dark, the only light entering the camera lens was from our flashlights. We used rubber bands to hold colored cellophane over the light of the flashlight, then carefully wrote our letters, numbers, or shapes in the air. Finally, we closed the shutter on the camera. We also took some long exposure pictures of the stars. Here are some of the results!
