Streaking in the Forest

OK, not in that way!

Mike Wanini and I headed out one evening to photograph. We did just that for quite awhile, but weren’t really getting anything inspiring until it got rather dark out. I had a small flashlight with me. Not just any small flashlight, but the Leatherman Serac S3 which cranks out an amazing 100 lumens with a single CR123 battery! Anyway, Mike dug out a small flashlight of his own and we started to experiment. The best results we got were made when we opened the shutter for about 30 seconds and the ran through the woods waving the flashlights around, being sure to not just be in front of the trees, but also in behind them revealing a very nice three dimensional feel to the images.
