I learned how to create these awesome light designs by slowing down my shutter speed. Ever since Courtney at Click It Up uploaded a picture of a heart she created with a flashlight, I've been dying to try it too. This week she posted directions for how to get this effect with flashlights, car lights, and other moving light sources. I closed myself up in my bathroom. Propped my camera up on the vanity stool and gave it a try. I'm pretty proud of how the first try turned out. The hardest part was trying to write the word backwards so it would be correct for the picture.
**Note to all who attempt this. Practice writing backwards in cursive. It took some major brain power on my part. :-)
