Torchlight CNY Night

This is Attempt #1 in scribbling some light-in-the-air words:


I think this pic will bring a truck-load of shame to the world of photographers. Paiseh.

I saw these pics couple of weeks back and wanted very much to imitate them.

Anything will do but like the first pic! lol.

I wanted to write a long message, which needs say...1 or 2 minutes. But the longest I can hold the shutter open is 30 secs, then it's BULB mode.

BULB mode is a mode where the shutter is held open as long as the button is pressed. On Canons (and most other makes I think), it's on M mode. Which means someone has to press and hold the button while I'm writing.

(Why in the world is it called BULB anyway? -__- anyone knows?)

Soooo, with me doing this alone, I had to tie a rubber band and a stubby piece of paper to keep the shutter pressed. Very schoolboy, but It works.

Attempt # 2


Hantu EVo huhu. Not ready.


Attempt # 3


Message is coming!


Attempt #4


Ter-press when I was trying to MURDER the *@#^@* nyamuk around my legs.

Attempt #7 / 8 / 9




Attempt #11



Don't ask me why it takes 1+ minute to write this just needs that time!

There were more that I missed out but I didn't wanna be outside with the damn nyamuk anymore. It felt quite as big as a housefly when I tried to slap it.
