Light Painting Flowers
This post combines a few of my favorite things: light painting and backlighting. Add the fact that it's a translucent subject and I'm in hog heaven. The post to which I'm referring was written by Ken Hubbard of the Tamron Angle of View blog, and it really features a lovely photograph and some helpful information about painting with light. It's also good advice if you're looking to set your work apart by approaching a fairly standard subject with a unique technique. In this case, Mr. Hubbard used light painting (interesting) as a backlight (even more interesting) to light a flower and make it appear as if it were really glowing from within (most interesting of all). A great example of a simple technique and a subject we've all seen before, having been combined to great effect. Well done on all counts!
