I really do love love love you.
If you have a love message – you could always add a note.
How I took this picture “I love love love you”
Here’s the recipe:
A bag of 50 tea lights
Black background (actually one of my tee-shirts)
A camera – lovely Canon 550d dslr
A room with no lights (wait until after sun set!)
Aperture – to process
GIMP – to add a bit of extra back background because my tee-shirt wasn’t big enough. I may love gimp.
ISO 100 to get the highest quality possible – low noise.
F/20 – Tight aperture to increase the exposure time (because my room wasn’t really pitch black)
A message – this one is universal – I <3 U . Its also a personal message for me today. Remote control - to avoid camera shake. Then play with the shutter speed on manual mode to get the exposure of choice. I've gone Goldilocks here - not to bright and not too dark. Mix up the recipe and out burst this picture of love. Three things I learned 1. Tea-lights - candles - burn at different rates - some were out in seconds. Perhaps its because mine were cheap. 2. Its very easy to spill wax from a tea-light - poor tee-shirt. 3. Only light the tea-lights once your love message is in place. The can get quite hot to move around otherwise. Love it.
