October Photo Challenge: Day 16 - Long Exposure

So after my original idea didn't pan out for this shot, I decided to take Mr. L out to the backyard and play with some flashlights!  (Also, oops!  Another last minute post, yikes!)

(Mr. L's attempt at a heart, which he declared actually looks more like a peach instead...)

This was my absolute first experience with using long exposure, so I really had no idea what I was doing.  I kept playing around with the ISO and whatnot, and the background always came out green like that.  Is it just the lighting that was outside (moonlight + a fluorescent shed light)?  Also, if you have any tips for me on how I can make better long exposure shots, please leave them in the comments!  They're such an awesome concept, and I'd love to shoot more like them, just better than this, obviously!

  1. This is pretty cool! It could be a pumpkin too... since it looks kinda orange and it is October. ;-)
