This summer I saw a post on the Nerd Nest about photographing sparklers in fun ways. Since we got our big camera last year, we’ve taken a ton of photos. But we haven’t delved a lot into all the cool things you can do in Manual mode. I just happened to have some glow sticks lying around, so we headed outside to make some magic 🙂
Here is a layout I made with some of the cool photos we got. (I’m still going through the couple hundred photos we took that night, so I’ll do another post with bigger pictures soon.
We went outside one night with the camera to try and capture some fun effects with glow sticks. It was neat to see the patterns we could make by changing a few camera settings. We made circles, swirls, hearts, and even had a light saber battle!
