For Chinese New Year, I did an interesting experiment with my Nikon Coolpix p520, that of the famous light painting! Like this:
First, I’d like to share the video tutorial that led me to discover this amazing art:
Watch it if you want to know how to do it, because here I’m mainly going to show how it’s not necessary to have all these high tech equipments to achieve the same results.
Basically, here’s what you need to do light painting:
– Torches (any colour! or many colours! I actually used my phone’s flashlight, which was downloaded on Play Store :P)
– Any camera that can be manually set to low exposure (low shutter speed)
– Something stable to put your camera on, like a tripod.
– Preferably a remote control, like in the video above, so as to again minimize shakiness. Because pressing the shutter button directly can make the camera shaky, I guess.
– And most importantly: friends!!! Yeps, and have fun! I had my sister and cousins with me 🙂
She had known it all along. Her boss was an evil monster. She had seen him, his face vehemently changing into a disgusting greyish weird shape, while his nose and eyebrows had seemed to melt and his teeth falling off…
Illumination… An interesting theme to tackle since New Year celebrations have just passed… Thus I photographed little fireworks 😀 (the one that we place on the ground and which remains on the ground even when we light it up!)
I stared at the starry night that offered this last day of the year. All my people were in joy, in celebration. It would be soon the end, yet the beginning. No one and nothing would dare miss this day, this hour. All the stars were present. All the colours in the sky as well: blue, purple, red, pink…
Yesterday I attended the last day of the MUN (Model United Nations) Conference of this year – organised for students… and for us to think of a brighter future 🙂 We all sang ‘We are the world’ in the end of the closing ceremony:
Do you see how beautiful it is when all the lights are turned off except the ones on stage?
For New Year I received a brand new award called Candle Lighter from kweschn.wordpress.com! 🙂 Thanks so much again!
