Light Painting with LEDs


It's the perfect time of year to take advantage of the long nights.   These images were taken with a Canon S110 -- just a little point and shoot on the automatic settings.  I made sure to move the camera while taking the image in effort to capture the streaky lights.  The pulsing of the LED Solstice Lights creates the multiple points of light rather than a straight streak with the regular old-fashioned Christmas lights.   Just a little post-production editing to bump up the shadows, making the colors POP on the black background.   Scroll down to see some of the other images from the set, or watch the video to see them stream by as if in a dream ... 

Here's a little slide show video  I posted to You Tube with some wonderful music by Midival Punditz called Naina Laagey (Hello Hello).   (I am amused that Picassa calls this a movie--like I'm now in the ranks of Stephen Spielberg!)

On another Photography note : 
Flickr is running a series of Concept Collaborations this year - with a different theme every month.
The January Theme was Catalyst of Light.  I wish I would have known about it soon enough to participate.  Some beautiful pictures there!

The February theme is Spiral-- I'm pretty sure I can come up with something!
