    So after seeing pilgrim's "High Times" post, i decided to give some of that stuff a try myself in my pitch black room.



    #1 - this is almost a self portrait, except i'm a little blurry from moving to write my name out with the match :)
    [​IMG]



    #2 - just pointed a flashlight at my wall and made a swirly
    [​IMG]



    #3 - turned the flashlight on/off to move between the eyes and mouth :)
    [​IMG]



    #4 - just another swirl, this time facing the flashlight at the camera so the swirl is in mid air
    [​IMG]



    And now some more artistic ones



    #5 - my computer's powerstrip in my dark room still
    [​IMG]



    #6 - sell "portrait" of me in the middle of my street around 1:00AM (about an hour ago :D)
    [​IMG]



    #7 - just walked outside, saw a car coming, and snapped a picture...results were pretty cool i thought

    Thanks for looking,
    Dan :D

    Picasso drawing minotaur photographed by Gjon Mili in 1949.

    This pic scanned out of the Phaidon Photo Book. A cheap but good book filled with famous photographs.

    Nice pictures! The first one and 5 are my favorite. Number one because of the fire writing but the 5th is because of the eerie red glow.

    Nytmair, interesting pictures. :0) I assume you did these with film? Or digital? Just ask cuz your signature just lists a digital, at least I think it was a digital.

    My confusion was the camera in your signature seemed like a point and shoot name, so I was thinking it didnt do long exposures, so I was thinking you must have used a film to get the long exposure. Then the "I took this one an hour ago" made me wonder since if it was film, and even if you did the hour developing, it would be a few hours between getting it and driving back and scanning, hehe. So I just looked your camera up and the closest I found was S40, nice camera, and nice long exposure, 15 seconds. Although the price tag of that camera is US $800, so I would imagine the 45 being a bit more than that. So out of curiousity, what made you pick this digital camera over all the other options? It does seem like a nice camera. :0).

    hmm, my camera was $399 from amazon.com.... The models S45 and S50 are the exact same except the S45 is 4MP and S50 is 5MP... here's the specs on my camera:

    and i was just looking, and i have no idea why the S40 is $800 and mine is about $400....they look exactly the same to me :scratch:
