I got a message from my friend Jen just after I got off the late shift asking me if I wanted to come help her with an assignment for her photo class. Always up for a photo shoot, I get dressed and headed out. I was trying to help teach her the basics of long exposure photography when we found a group of glow poi dancers downtown. It was a great chance to demonstrate how shutter dragging works, and I was even able to grab a few shots for myself. Granted, the flash wasn’t as reliable as I hoped, so I wound up with a bunch of shots where it just didn’t go off. I just decided to roll with it in the editing though, and just cranked the contrast up to 11 to get some cool abstract designs.
