7 days #3


Hey you... wanna see me play the drums? Here ya go! haha!

I have been playing professionally for ten years or so. I started playing drums in... 86? Mom is that right? Anyway, My Mom said if I took lessons for six months and passed a test she would buy me a drum kit. Long story short the crack head drum teacher ( no, the other crack head drum teacher) showed up for my lesson... almost never. So I set there practicing by myself, teaching myself. I might be a little bitter... I'm over it. :)

7 days day three. Self portrait at the kit. Long exposure obsession. 30 second exposure + $3.99 Energizer keychain L.E.D. from Target = fun. This concept may be pushing the self portrait theme however I was physically in front of the open shutter for thirty seconds. ;)

I gotta experiment with the light trail concept...

Nice work... did you get that in one shot?

What you see is itself one shot, however it took me many attempts to nail it. I had to find the right speed to draw for optimum exposure. I had to get the angle of the light and the fluidity of my movement down... it was quite a bit of work... there are so many factors and variables. It was fun. You should try it!
