66. Sparkler Skull

Sparkler Drawing. I hope you didn't think I was skipping today, I just had to wait until dark to capture this one! Thanks to J for procuring the sparklers and being my camera assistant.

thats pretty cool
did you just use a manual shutter speed for it?

ALR design said...

Thanks!
I set the camera as follows:
400 ISO
f5.0
Bulb Setting
The shutter was then manually held open for as long as the skull took to draw (5-7 seconds).

I wish digital camera's could do extended exposures (as far as I know they can't)

ALR design said...

Some can David, I'm using the Canon Digital Rebel Xti (EOS 400D).

This is REALLY impressive. How many tries did it take? I can't believe how well it came out!

ALR design said...

Thanks! I did about 20 versions. Several were decent, but this was definitely my favorite.
