    I used this "Trick" in 1976 when I was shooting fashion in Canada and the client asked me to make a Neon tube that would duplicate the shape of the model
    I created a black set with a black background paper,used pro flash to make the main exposure . with the shutter on "time"
    When the flash had fired, the model,in the dark,remained stationary,and my assistant simply stood behind her with an ordinary flashlight pointing at the camera and whizzed the torch around her body.
    Then I closed ther shutter and did it all again with a new (negative)
    The client,who was a new,broke,designer loved the shots and also the additional cost "NIL"

    I used the trick where you move the zoom lens as you release the shutter. It took some time to get the hang of it but when I did they came out amazing. I have them on my Smugmug site and sent away for some to frame and they just came today and they are absolutely wonderful. I bought frames for two that are similar so I can make a set. Thank you so much for these great ideas. Keep them coming. If you want to check them out here is my site. http://www.mimisphotos.smugmug.com Linda Camilletti

    [...] Next, point your camera at something bright like an interesting lamp (in this case, with a ribbed glass cover that ended up making fun patterns). Then, while your shutter is open, grab hold of your camera (tightly!) and shake!…More at Light Writing: Cool Camera Tricks You Can Try at Home [...]
