Playing with Light

While most of Britain was suffering torrential rain and floods, my friends and I were enjoying fine weather on the Norfolk coast for a weekend camping trip. While sitting round the camp-fire, someone brought out sparklers, which naturally led to people drawing and writing in the dark. I started taking long-exposure photos of these drawings, and then remembered a Strobist blog article, about firing the flash remotely from several locations in one long exposure. The results are shown below.
