Glow sticks

By crazylady
Bought my daughters some packs of glow sticks for halloween & bonfire night - then picked up a spare pack for me to play too!

Boosted brightness, contrast & saturation.
Started to "lose" non coloured areas which were bubbles/air within the stick, but decided just to leave them be!!

well .....................

made the letter "shapes" by bluetacking the glow sticks to the lounge laminate floor (as you do! - and if the kids did that I think I would go mental ....hmm!)
Camera on tripod angled almost above sticks on floor.
Started in aperture priority, but even with lights off still managed to include floor detail in shot - didn't want to mess about replacing this in photoshop so tried other various settings.

Ended up with shutter priority - speed of 1/2 sec which blacked out floor for me.

PS glowsticks were 1 a tube of 15 from Bewise/QS!!!
