Photo Tips

How to capture it with one light

Here’s another photography tip for you all.  I was up in the mountains for a family reunion and wanted to do a shot of my nieces and nephews in front of the place where we all stayed.  I decided to do a night shot, but didn’t like what I was getting with a flash.  So, with camera mounted on a tripod, and with an exposure of 20 seconds, I used a flash light to paint with light.  Now I need to explain that I have a powerful flashlight.  Remember, the farther you are from your subject the more light power you will need.  Thankfully, everyone stayed really still for 20 seconds (thanks family!).  Get out there and experiment with light and see what you can do with it.  Have fun!
