The story behind the image
Many years ago I saw a photo in TIME Magazine of an awesome light drawing by Pablo Picasso that he created in the late 1940s. I had always to explore this technique but for some reason I never tried it. With Halloween approaching, I took my camera to our dark master bedroom for a fun shot. But unlike Picasso, I did not want to appear in the image.
All I needed was a tripod, a very long exposure time and a torch. I simply followed the traces of my body and was amazed about the stunning results I could achieve after just very few frames. The image above looks really scary.
It’s super fun and simple to do and I will work on my technical skills (as well as my drawing skills, haha.)
