So I seem to still be on this whole glow stick kick. For this weeks assignment we were allowed to shoot whatever we wanted or re-do a project. I wanted to re-do my painting with light and of course I wanted to play more with glow sticks. I also wanted to experiment with the human figure. I originally intended on just doing the male nude but after a few photos I decided I wanted to compare it with the female figure. And the only female I had was myself....good times. Hahah. This is my first time shooting myself completely nude and I kind of liked it. The result not the being nude part. Anywho, these photos are all 30 second exposures on my Nikon D5000 with a Aperture of F16. Enjoy!! And I would love a little feedback if you have some! The second image is actually two images I combined together in Photoshop then edited further in Lightroom 3.


  1. Found your blog through a friend Felicia. Just wanted to tell you I think your work for this assignment is great. I've worked with glow sticks before, and I think the thing that is most impressing me about this is that I cant figure out how you did this. I've mostly used the thin bracelet glow sticks, and I think maybe you are using the regular sized glow sticks here. I find the 1st, 4th, and last images to be the most successful. Especially the 4th. I think if you lit the background the last couple of seconds on the exposure you might end up with something even more magical than these images. I can see this in the 4th image. I imagine the guy surrounded by a bunch of books, or sitting in a library, and the ethereal glow is coming out of whatever book he has in his hands. I think giving a context or setting for the images can only help. Anyway, nice work!
