Sparkler Fun

Hi Bunnies.

When i was at college studying A-level photography back in 2006 one of my favourite projects was learning how to light paint. If you don't know what light painting is, it's taking a picture with a camera on a slow shutter speed and wave lights around to create drawings and wonderful effects.

Zoella's recent blog post on light drawing and playing around with sparklers brought back these fun memories and inspired me to have a go myself.

I don't have a fancy SLR camera (yet!) but i do have a Panasonic Lumix compact camera with a setting which adjusts the shutter speed to about 2 seconds. It's amazing what compact cameras can do. I have had my camera for over a year and only realised that i can do this.

Please learn from my mistake and check your settings with what you can do with your equipment because i thought that i was restricted.

When i was creating my pictures i felt like i was a ninja because i had to draw the shapes that i wanted really fast within the 2 second shutter speed time. The results came out better than i thought. What do you guys think? :)

Remember to have a bucket of water on stand by after you've used the sparkler as they can get very hot. Be safe but have fun :)

Firstly i started with my channel initials B and M.

Here is my attempted selfie. I like to pretend that i'm Cinderella's godmother. 

My name initial "H"

Let me know in the comments below if you've tried light painting before.
