More More Painting with Light

This was an experiment I tried in my front yard last night.

Maglite without hood on a piece of string with a wireless speedlight off to the side on the left of the image.

I liked the way that the speedlite made it look like the light came from the sphere but I feel that there are too many strands to the sphere so might have to try using a solid bar instead of the string… Will post when I get a chance to try it out.

This is all experimentation for an upcoming project of Urban Light Graffiti which I hope will happen in the next few weeks.
