Light Painting with Ballyknock Photography

5R0A2907

You’ve seen quite a few photos by Adrian Cunningham, otherwise known as Ballyknock Photo over the last two years. (Check out this one, this one and this recent one here.) I figured it was about time I payed him back, so a few weeks ago, we headed to an empty beach just before sunset and made some awesome images!

Adi has been into long-exposure night shots for a while now, has also done some artsy work with sparks and steel wool, and recently he discovered Eric Paré’s light painting work and tutorials online and was hooked! 5R0A2862 5R0A2882

For each shot, I stood perfectly still for somewhere between 10-30 seconds while Adi triggered the shutter on the camera to open remotely, then waved a lighted tube behind me. The results are varied and awesome! 5R0A2894-Edit

These are just a few of my favorites—check out more from this session and others, along with the rest of his work here!

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

cotm_1016_7302I can’t beleive it’s October! If you thought the pace of my blog posts last month was something, you should have seen my whirlwind trip home. Anyway, enough about me! For this month’s Card Club collection, I pulled some of my favorite autumnal botanical cards, plus some gold and orange to make it feel like fall!

Believe it or not, next month’s collection will be the holiday delivery, which always comes with some fun extras, so sign up today! Purchase a subscription here.
