P52:Week 10 – Alternative Light

Aaaaand we’re back to light. I think we’re moving into composition, so this is the last week on light. So…. Alternative light – I’m reading that as any light source that isn’t natural (i.e. the sun). Luckily, it still is gross and winter and I seem to only get my camera out while we’re inside. I started thinking about what I wanted to do this week, and for some reason I seem to love torturing myself with low light situations (and my camera. She really, really doesn’t like low light. Grain-a-palooza.) Originally I was going to use a flashlight. Then I remembered that Brady got a teeny tiny light saber (is that right? I’m missing my geek dictionary) on one of his valentines from his daycare friends. Then I wondered if it would fit in the hand of one of our many lego guys (since I was so inspired by that lego post a few weeks ago!). I got it out. It fit. Perfectly!

Originally I tried with in our bathroom on our night light:



Not quite the look I was going for, but interesting. 

Then Mr. Lego and I went downstairs to the kitchen to find a flashlight. Here’s what we came up with. Hubs didn’t even bat an eyelash when he came in to the dark room with me on my tummy with a flashlight and a lego man on the floor.



Those were my favourites. Although I wish I had a bigger flashlight. 


Hungry for a snack?


I’ll try to be better this week on posting. I didn’t pick up my camera much last week!
