Fun with an open shutter and fire!

During the holidays I hang out with family. But, when Leyton had to go to bed early my nephew Jesse and I stayed back from a church service to keep him company.

I thought this was a cool shot of him enthralled in a video game!

Anyways, we got bored waiting for everyone to come back so I brought out the camera and we started shooting. We got more bold and creative as we went and ended up shooting the following images at really long shutter speeds, pointing at the fire and repeating movements (like circles, triangles, hearts etc) It was totally fun! You should definitely try it sometime! This is the beauty of digital. Tons of fun, experiment and no cost!

That is so funny that you did that! My kids were playing with Light Sticks last night for my sons birthday and sure enough I was able to capture some similar shots. It was actually a ton of fun to experiment!!!

I was taking pictures of our Christmas tree tonight and remembered this post. I took similar shots of our tree lights. It was fun!
