Week 35 #32 Painting With Light


We just returned from spending 2 weeks on Sanibel Island. We have enjoyed vacationing there for over 25 years. One evening I asked my daughter and her family to help with the Painting With Light theme. My son in law was a real trooper helping me with settings and suggestions of things to “Paint”. Between swatting mosquitos and no see ‘ums I got some fun shots.

The first shot my son in law used the flash light to spell out Love.


ISO 1600 Focal length 44mm Aperture f/14 Shutter speed 15 seconds

The second shot my granddaughter using the flash light made a heart with the family in the shadows behind her.


ISO 1600 Focal length 44mm Aperture f/8 Shutter speed 5 seconds

We decided to try it again next year using smaller flash lights and spraying our selves from head to toe with bug spray to keep the pesky bugs away!!

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
