    My friends and I stumbled across this abandoned warehouse and we thought it would be a good place to shoot some photos. I somehow convinced my girlfriend to run behind the person with the flashlight and flash my speedlite every so often to achieve the silhouette effect. Here are my two favorites:

    You should have it spell something with the light.

    I really like the silhouette effect!

    I really really like the first one. 2nd one, I'd crop the right side so it's cut off on both sides..

    I also really dig what you did with the flash

    Thanks everybody. It's going to be a place I will revisit with various other cool things that emit light.

    Well in these two shots my friend Betsy had the flashlight... While I told Kelsey (My ladyfriend) to trip the flash only when Betsy was directly between her and the camera. So that way there wasn't a bunch of bright starburst looking things throughout the photo.

    I've done the writing before but the silhouette effect is awesome. I like how the flashlight blurred as she wrote.

    This was a very creative idea and I also love the silhouette effect. I would like to see what it would have looked like if the silhouettes were just a little more well defined and with maybe a little color in the light painting. Keep up the good work.
