And no, that doesn’t mean sitting around writing pancake haikus vs writing a novel (you know who you are!). I’m talking about drawing images with light!
I’ve tried light writing out before, but after an experience at the birth of 2010, I wanted to try some more elaborate drawings. Having minions to draw for me turned out to be a lot of fun. This is what happened the first time around. @bodhiquest and @cypressrising were the scribes who helped me create this photo.
I used to live next to a photography buddy, but now we find ourselves on opposite sides of the bay. To make collaboration easier, we decided to try out some light writing on our own but with a similar theme.
These shots were basically our test run to try out some ideas and practice this style. What kind of background should we shoot on, what would get drawn, how do we direct the scribes, etc?

At this point, we had only tried having 1 or 2 scribes. It was time to up the ante and get a whole group going. Throughout this process, Anna and I had been getting good practice shooting in this style. However, it was just as important that our scribes were now versed in the ways of light writing as well!
Here is what we came up with.

Trying to keep your place in the air, especially when you are trying to keep track of where someone else has already drawn, is difficult to say the least, lol. We had a lot of fun! Thanks everyone!
