Project 365-ish: December 31, 2012
Daughter and I plunked down our 4 packages of sparklers to be totaled. "We are low-key celebrators" I told the fireworks vendor.
Indeed, all we need are a few sparklers, some little pull-string party poppers, and some noise-makers. Nothing gives me joy like going out every hour on New Year's Eve, popping off a popper, and making one long toot on a noisemaker. (the Midnight version may involve several poppers and several heartfelt toots)
This year, we did this time-lapse, low light, light-painting photograph with our sparklers on New Year's Eve. I had the "3". We had to paint backwards, so I just kept thinking, "draw and E, draw and E" to make sure I did it right!
This was made by putting the DSLR on a tripod, manual mode, f.20-ish, 13-second exposure. We light-painted over and over, like crazy. (-:
Happy New Year!
