"Painting With Light" experiment I'd seen on a blog that I check for ideas once in a while. I had seen it last week and fiddled around with my camera for a while after bedtime one night to see if it was capable of doing it. I found (after looking at the product's website for a bit) that if I put it on the "Night Scenery" setting and took off the automatic setting that helps correct any hand shaking movements it worked...basically, you just need to figure out how to get a slow shutter speed and I think it would work. I had gone to the dollar store on the way home from the stock show to get some glow sticks, and had bought this crazy bubble machine for Zoe at the show (it's also also a multi-colored flashlight) thinking it might be a cool thing to use for this experiment as well. It ended up being SO FUN that Nathan practically had to drag me and Zoe away to eat dinner. She and I were going picture crazy as we would take turns executing ideas and then run to the camera to see the results, yelling "OOOOO COOOOL!" at almost every single one. You should definitely try it...she and I had a blast with it for a really long time and I bet we will revisit it. By the way, though, while the glow sticks added a layer to the pictures, they were definitely not as spectacular as flashlights and the bubble machine...
