Night is falling, and it seems appropriate to me to share with you my (our) first attempts at light trails drawing, made with a Canon S5 IS digital camera, which was set up on a bench in the park (settings: 15 seconds exp., F/3.5, ISO 100).
The date is April 23rd, and the participants are: me, Ani, Nixo, Katya (and Raly).
We used a small bottle and a cup to mark the two boundaries of the frame, and 2 lighters (with blue lights). Here are some of the best shots:
First try! (Btw, I think I dropped the “E” from my name, but well… Flick’r also dropped theirs, so I can live with that!) ;-)
And this is “NixoNixo” — or actually, Nixo2! ;-)
An attempt to draw a naked woman… Hmmm… I think it rather resembles a Blue Alien, you know, but with a bit of imagination… :-D
“Katya” in light trails…
“Ani” in light trails… :-)
And this beautiful flower was drawn by Ani, in just a few strokes!
A portrait of a dog (again by Ani)
Fat Cat — by Nixonixo.
A smiley! :-P
A ghost-like figure…
This is a Sumo Fighter, using some “mixed” technique — I was standing in a weird pose, and Nixo was painting the countours! :)
This is the Masterpiece of the Evening — “A Knight and his Dame”, by Ani and Nixo!
“Ping-pong Players” — 4 of us were participating to create this drawing — two of us posing, and two — drawing!

It was super-fun! I hope that with some better equipment and some more experience, we could create in the dark at least La Joconde or Smaug the Dragon! :-)))
