Light Drawing, take 1

This is a very simple way. All you need is a DSLR, a dark room and a torch light.
Only sucky thing is that you have to either write backwards or use a program to mirror it.

I only managed to write my initials cause well, you are limited to a few seconds only.
So this is how you do it.

  1. Set your camera to Shutter Priority/ TV and place it on a tripod or on a table.
  2. Set the shutter to about 10 to 15 seconds. Point the camera at the space you are gonna write in.
  3. Focus on the area. Make sure you have lots of room.
  4. Off the lights, press the shutter and go to the spot and switch ON your torchlight.
  5. Start writing and do it quick!
  6. When you hear the shutter close, on the lights and check the picture out. 
  7. * Make sure its a pretty dark room or else you would see your own figure.  
    That's about it. If you have a wide lens, use it. Bigger space for you to write.
