Flashlight Photography

Posted by on | |

I wonder u guys heard of this type of photography technique? I read about it at a magazine quite long ago and decided to have it a try yesterday in my room with the lights off. Is kinda of fun but require a lot of try an error before u will be getting better results.

Image information :
Camera Model - Canon IXUS 980IS
F-stop - f8
Shutter Speed - 15 Seconds
ISO - 80

I still new to this and think is kinda of fun doing it... The picture shows 'Jeffery' jz in case u cant get it.

Technique is putting the shutter to longer exposure and use a flash light or any light source (in this case i using my handphone flash) and when the camera start shooting. All u need to do is use the flash light and draw/write wat u wan... Anything will do... shape or anything.

In case u dono wat i saying here, jz google "Flashlight Photography" to understand the technique more.

p/s: do leave ur comment ya... TQ

Hi goingkookies, Thanks for ur comment ya. Hehe

Canon IXUS is not a DSLR but it have fully manual mode that allow u to do watever u wan jz like a DSLR. Maybe not tat impresive compared to DSLR.

If i'm not mistaken... IXUS 100IS do not have fully manual mode and wat u can do is use night mode i guess... I'm not very sure abt this..

Anyway good luck to u:)

p/s: if u managed to do it on ur 100IS den teach me how ya... TQ
