Painting with Light

(I just noticed that I never hit the send button on this one either, sorry again!) 

I thought the painting with light exercise was really cool.  I’d seen pictures like this in the past but never knew how they were done.  One of the key things I learned was that the lighting must be right in order to capture the person and not the background.  Also when the light fired, the motion had to be quick enough for the colored light to be captured without the light source.

This was my favorite photo today because it looks like the light is going through my face and changing colors as it does so.  I also really like the shadows on my arms from the positioning of the strobe light.
