First shots with my new luminous toys!

I could not wait one more minute to using my new Light Painting toys so that, as soon as I got off work last Friday I headed to a park located next to Hammersmith Bridge. Girlfriend and some patient friends joined me and my new light painting gear to take a bunch of shots. Before the show, we had 2 or 3 pints of beer each to increase the creativeness slightly! hehe.

It was freezing and windy (maybe one more pint would have helped with this??) so we did not find the most ideal conditions to spend as much time as I would have wanted to, but anyway, I started to see the potential of what I just built and it is quite promising. I believe this summer this will be a common plan for me and friends, and the good point is that they seem to enjoy it too.

We were 4 people and in most of the pictures every one of us contributed in some way, either moving the lights around, checking the stop watch, enhancing the background with a torch and so on and so forth.

The pictures were taken in the darkest spot we could find in the area, but as you can see the background is still too bright, meaning that I could not go slower than 1 minute of shutter speed without ruinning the frame! This time does not give too room for most ideas so next week I will try to find a more suitable location. Fingers crossed for the weather being a bit more thankful, hehe.
