365 Days -- Attempt #2 -- Day 3 -- Me and My Mac, A Backlit Keyboard Portrait.

The last time I did 365 Days, this type of shot proved popular.


This was a long exposure with the only light being produced by the backlight keyboard and display of my MacBook Pro. I wiggled my fingers during the exposure to give the ghosting effect, hoping that it would look a bit like I was typing.


To set up the shot, I put my machine on the floor in my hallway and put my tripod over it, looking straight down. I had to lay on the floor to get my hands in position.


For you Mac nerds, that's a Unibody MacBook Pro, my newest toy....
