Captain Jack Goes for a Ride

Picture of the Month – April 2010

I’ve been tutoring a friend on photography and every once in a while we schedule a session in the studio to just play around, experiment, and learn. I had wanted to experiment with light painting which is a technique where you work in a totally dark room, and use flashlights or other small constant lights to light the scene. It’s easier to do with more than one person, so in this shot my assistant worked with the background lights, pointing them towards the camera and moving them around which left the colored streaks of light. While she was doing that I was using a flashlight to light Captain Jack and his trusty Triumph Sprint ST.
