Playing with light

The other evening while my hubbie and I were out for dinner we had some fun playing with long exposures on the camera.  The first was just a happy accident where the camera clicked off an extra shot and I didn't feel like waiting patiently for it to get enough light so I moved the camera around trying to capture every little bit of light possible.

For this next shot we set the camera's shutter speed to BULB which means that the shutter stays open as long as we are holding the shutter button.  We both tried our hands at making light flowers and this was the best we got. Its not great, I know, be we had fun!

Sometimes photography is just about having fun, not about capturing the next masterpiece.  We had a lot of fun just playing with the light.  I want to encourage you to just have fun with whatever your passion is, be it photography or something else.  You never know what you might come up with!
