Painting with light {Light & Reflections Series}

This month Light & Reflections theme is art. We did some art on the light table  like painting and printing and oil and watercolor art but this time I've decided to do something new and different to Mr Frog. It's kind of photo art - painting with light. 

Painting with acrylics, oils, pastels. We've done that already! Painting with light - is it possible? This art experiment was lots of fun for both of us :) Every time effect is a bit of surprise - you plan the final result but sometimes you get something different. It does need some practice. And spontaneous, creative gross motor movements ;)

I used camera on the tripod in the dark room and explained Mr Frog (more or less) how the camera works. I set the camera's settings - ISO 100, AV 2.8, T10" or more. 

Then I asked him to paint in the air using his little torch light while I released the shutter.  


I do hope this first photo-art experiments will arouse his interest in photography as an art medium one day.....well, right now he's the most interested in camera technical stuff and settings ;)
