      Anything with circle, curves or spirals!
      Or using the spiral for composition.

        Nice spirals P71.ย  Don’t know much about the light painting process, but if the spirals are freehand, I admire how they’re almost a match set!

          Thanks very much Preston , these are done freehand , it was made easy with the help of the three stone blocks spacing , the tool was a piece of clear plastic rolled into a tube with a pink end cap to prevent light leaks with a piece of blue paper inside the tube and the light was a small pocket torch to light the tube.

          Appreciate your feedback mate.

        These are great. I did this once and it IS fun. At the time decided I’d do it more often but haven’t yet. These two are inspiration.

          That’s what I thought when I tried it too. Maybe after the holidays I’ll get some photo play time.

        The color and shape of the smoke spiral is great Pat. I really like the way you managed to capture it surrounding one of the circles.
