When my dad first saw my new blog, he said that if he didn’t know any better he would have assumed the background was computer generated. It is in fact a photograph I took back in 2009 shortly after buying my first (and currently my only) digital SLR camera, aNikon D3000. By playing around with the shutter speed and a torch I was able to produce this image:
So tonight, after missing my camera badly, I hunted down the box it was packed in, unpacked it and had another go at creating light photographs. I experimented with three torches tonight. The first was the three LED bulb one used in the above picture. The second was a torch I accidentally stole from my dad’s wedding with nine tiny LED bulbs in a circle pattern. And the third is a torch that I bought at Australian Geographic ages and ages ago that is not an LED torch and lights up in a yellowish/white and a red.
All photos taken with my Nikon D3000 and Nikkor 18-55mm lens with an ISO-100

PS. What do you think of the slideshow? Do you prefer to see multiple images displayed like this? Or as static individual images?
