Light and Motion Study Photography Project

I've started doing a photography project that involves long exposures, and light and motion studies. I use an emulsion transfer process to transfer the image to printmaking paper or canvas and then paint on the image from there. So far, it's been a very satisfying project for me.

This is actually quite easy to do with almost any digital (or analog) camera that has manual settings. If you try and set the exposure time at different lengths you will get great results from just about any light source. The trick is in that flick of the wrist that helps to create the illusion of motion while the shutter is open. It's almost too easy! But if you keep working at it, imagine the results if you are shooting moving lights, like a carnival ride, in a circle. It's great fun.

Thank you for the kind comment/ Did you work on the project that produced this image? I'm an artist who is continually searching for tools that would allow me to expand my exploration of light, sound visualization and other means of creating art projects related to these ideas. :)
