Flashlight Painting



I’m selling my Nikon FM2 (on Craig’s List). In the process of getting the camera out, it made Audrey curious about how it worked. I gave her a short photography lesson and told her about a cool photo I remembered seeing of Pablo Picasso drawing a minotaur with a flashlight in the dark. We never could find the photo online, but we decided to try the technique ourselves. It was a lot of fun, and we made several interesting photos. You can see a few more here.

  1. You need a manual override on the shutter speed and a tripod. Just leave the shutter open for as long as it takes to make your flashlight design; 10 seconds or so.
