Light Painting

I could most likely get away with telling you this was my attempt trying to do a camera technique called 'light painting'. It is something I have been wanting to experiment with. However, this is purely a couple of happy mistakes I made trying to take photos of the Christmas lights on my front porch.
I like both the abstract effect and the colors.
Very happy mistakes!

Sometimes our 'mistakes' give us beautiful pictures. This is one of those times.

I like when experiments turn out completely different than I had planned, but yet still turn out! These are nice!

I have never heard of this "LIght painting" but I sure have taken and deleted lots of these types of photos. I will have to start saving them to see if I have captured anything that comes close to you lovely shots.

Thanks for visiting my red rocker this week.

Love the bright colors! I had a similar result as in your 2nd pic when once I was trying to photograph something at night from a moving car! Those happy accidents are even better than when we know what we're doing:)

Neal said...

Yeah, you should have told us you spent hours getting those pictures. :)

I had a similar "mistake" while out camping. used it to relay a story of our campground being haunted.
Joy is where you find it.
Loving the music on your site.

I got some pictures like that when I took Christmas light pictures, but none of my mistakes turn out as beautifully as yours. Well, none of my other photos do either, so I guess that's no surprise ;>)... These are great!

They sure are unique, and I love the last one.
