Dragged this out from a couple of years back after being reminded of it by another epz-er.

At the time I had thoughts of making triptych images or larger panels conveying messages. In the end I decided it was interesting but ultimately too contrived for my taste, so I'm posting it here to see what anyone else thinks Smile

The letters were painted in with a torch from 'behind' the letters, and the grass is illuminated using the same torch waved about from behind the camera. All with the camera on BULB

and you had to write it back to front too ! great mirror writing

but if you write with a smaller torch and do not aim it into the cam it works better

Very well done, looks simple - obviously isn't. Like it.

Paul - I have to say, with a little planning it was easier than I thought it would be to get a reasonable result. As always, just try to keep things simple.

Diana - I think what you have identified is that the 'g' is capitalised, but the i, h and t are lower.... as in LiGht. At the time this was to avoid the tail on the g, but you're right that it wasn't a good decision.
