RGB UFOs (wow, over 1500 Flickr favorites, thanks!!)

Update March 2013: I just re-shot a photo like this one in Death Valley a few days ago: www.flickr.com/photos/jeffreysullivan/8572363004/

I'm getting better at it!

Welcome Flickr Blog readers!

 

This light painting was performed on the Badwater salt flats in Death Valley National Park. I had a flashlight with three colors of LED light. During this single 30 second exposure I lit each color for close to 10 seconds while waving my arm around up and down (which traces a sphere).

I also post travel notes and photographic technique tips on my blog, www.MyPhotoGuides.com.

 

The week I shot this photo I had the privilege of meeting Flickr user Laura Travels on her way from Arizona to Northern California. I'm forming a new group on Flickr, "FlickrOffline" to facilitate photographers who like to shoot with others. Join us: www.flickr.com/groups/1397687@N20/

 

Pablo Picasso was a light painter!
