this is what nerds do with free time…

Tonight I sat in the dark with a knife trying to figure out how to do this technique for changing light shape in photos.  It’s a pretty neat effect, all you need is some time, patience, paper, camera and a beer.

I knew I had to have a very steady hand to pull this off… so naturally I gravitated toward the fridge.  It was there where I got my inspiration for this little exercise.

the photo below is straight out of the camera, no photoshop

Some of these turned kind of cool in their own quirky way.  I tried to get the cat involved but he wasn’t cooperating very well.


It was a decent first attempt at this… well, at least I know what I need to change for next time.  It still looks cool though!!…  that’s what my mom said.
