Camera light drawings with a digital camera are fun and produce often surprising (and immediate) results. I recently made these light hearts from a dining room chandelier (f/18 with a 0.6 second exposure).
I next turned my camera to a Christmas tree covered in white lights. I moved my camera in small, smooth swirls when I took this photograph (f/22 with a 4 second exposure).
I then took this strange photo of the Christmas tree shown below (f/16 with a 30 second exposure).
My next photos are of this firefly lantern (f/2.8 at ISO equivalent 800).
A firefly lantern is a metal and glass candle lantern filled instead with a small bundle of Christmas lights with plastic light covers. Photographing this same firefly lantern with different camera settings and moving the camera in spiraling swirls produced this image shown below (f/32 with a 13 second exposure).
Smaller swirling camera motions created this image shown below of the firefly lantern, which to me looks like hanging bunches of dried lavender (f/32 with a 25 second exposure).
I then tried to make a light drawing of flowers, and these scribbly light roses shown below are the result (f/32 with a 6 second exposure).
My next flower photo ended up looking more like dolphins than flowers (f/32 with a 5 second exposure).
I could have never intentionally drawn light dolphins by just wiggling the camera, so these were simply an interesting accident.
