Light of My Life


Remember this post? Well, I was reminded by SomeContrast to try it with a torch. The possibilities are endless with the different things you draw on an invisible board. It's clearer than a clear canvas!  For the above photo I wrote God's name in Arabic (Allah) and that has given me a nice idea for an original Ramadan e-card...




The image below has my daughter's name, Noor, which rather conveniently means 'light'.  Try it out.  Set your camera on a small aperture and a long shutter (on a tripod) and let your imagination move the torch!  Below is the fruit of my first attempt.
