    Buying a Nikon doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a Nikon owner.

    That's a pretty exciting and creative thing to do.

    How did you get the red line to meet so exactly? What did you use to put the AAs together?

    I think if you connected the batteries with wires or a thin red line like the one to the bulb, and made the lighting to look like the bulb was shining on the batteries and surface, it could approach stunning.

    Thanks Marionet -

    The red line took at least 100 takes to get so exact ! (Shhh..... don't tell anyone my secret...but its a red Christmas light with cardboard wrapped around it with a small hole poked in the card board and a very long shutter... but don't tell anyone my secret !) I did use a flashlight to shine on the bulb for a couple of seconds before the shutter closed, that why the bulb is kinda illuminated. Light painting is some kinda fun... Just bring your patience with you !!!

    Believe it or not its magic holding the batteries together (No - not really - tape and cardboard)

    I do like the idea of shining the bulb on the batteries and surface -- I may have to explore that idea -- BUT then again after all the takes to get this shot..... we will have to put that on the back burner for now.
    Not enough time in the day now for all the projects i want to try -

    Thanks for looking -
