Painting with light

As it is impossible for me to do nothing, Joe and I have signed up to do a photography course at the local college. Intermediate digital photography; I’m not sure I’m intermediate, yet, but that it what we were advised to do.

We’ve had two classes so far, and it’s great fun! The first involved painting with light. The camera (Nikon D70S) was set upon its tripod, and set up with a shutter speed of 15-20 seconds at F-stop 8 and ISO 800 (with a little experimentation around these settings).

In a couple of groups, we set about going crazy with torches, and popping balloons full of talcum powder. Here are some of our results!
