52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

32. Painting With Light


Last night a location had to be confirmed for an upcoming LWRDPC field trip we are having next week. During a practice session two nights ago we found out the original venue has a closing time. Sometimes I forget that we live in an area that everything closes and the sidewalks roll up at 10:00pm.

Not to worry though! A new location has been found! And it’s all walking distance from our meet up location at the town hall. If you are a photo club member you can get all the details at our club website www.lwrdpc.com. Β And if your a 52 week blogger as well it will be a perfect chance to fulfill your light painting theme!

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!

  1. Fun! I’ve been wanting to try this myself. Yours came out great!

    • Thanks Laura. There are oodles of online tutorials to give you a starting point. I’ve been collecting little lights for a long time. The best ones for orbs are the little dog collar lights they sell at Home Depot near the checkout. They are available in white or multi colored. I have 4 or 5 different technics planned depending on time. πŸ™‚

      • You’re welcome Mindy. Ah interesting about those dog collar lights. Thanks for the tip! I might just do that. I’m adding it onto a list I keep for photo ideas. πŸ™‚
