Unexpected Light Painting
We planned to spend the evening with the stars. Heavenly stars that is. I was all set up on the lighthouse pier in Southampton Ontario. I had the Lighthouse in the foreground and we were waiting for the sky to get dark.
Just as I started to shoot a group of people with flashlights come walking up the pier. Now they could not see us and we are wondering who they were and what they were up too.
My wife shouts out a hello and they say, sorry we did not see you there. At this point we see them putting down camera gear. OK we have company shooting the stars.
We were joined by a group of 4 young people and they came out to do some light painting with steel wool in a whisk. (for details on how to do this just google it and you will find lots in info)
This is something I have always wanted to try photographing and they were kind enough to let us join them in the fun. This was the first time for all of us and we had fun experimenting.
After a few tries we were joined by another photographer from Southampton.
We all had a blast and I think the results are pretty cool!
