Light Writing


#1

Just planning some night hyperlapse ideas and was reminded of these last year with the GoPro and iPhone ‘torch’ for the light. 5 second exposure times in the back yard.

Kids loved it.

why does the first one say Doris?


#3

That took forever, trying to do it backwards in ‘joined up’ writing

Nice! I’ve not tried writing words before. A bit like sparklers.

I did something similar at Leiston Abbey a few years ago. Framed the shot, waited for it to get dark, and then took a series of pics, starting at 30sec exposures and going up. ‘Painted’ on the ruins of the abbey with a torch while the shutter was open. The results were amazing. I’d post one, but I’ve not idea what I did with the pics.

It reminds of the bloke peeing his name in the snow but it was his girlfriends handwriting :slight_smile:

Actually it doesn’t remind me of that at all

I was asked to some photos by my nephews and his future wife at their wedding. They were pleased with the results, especially the letters spelling love. There were a few failures having to get them to do the letters neatly and the right way round!

I’m guessing that last shot was before alcohol was consumed.

Could just imagine it.


#11

People struggle to understand my handwriting when I’m sober!


#12

Am I the only one thinking ‘if that was me I’d be writing smutty messages with those lights’?


#13

So many four letter words to choose from. :rofl:


#14

Surprisingly it was later in the evening and they wanted friends there as well. Have to say, I didn’t drink much before these worrying about getting it right but has a a fair few afterwards… :wink:
