Grab a flashlight and a reasonable point and shoot camera to make some great spooky scenes like this over the Halloween Holidays!

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Set your camera’s ISO setting to 100 to force the camera to take a long exposure.  About a second would be a good start!
  • Get a friend to begin working away in front of you ‘drawing a shape’ with a low powered flashlight that’s pointing towards the camera.
  • As they begin their movement, hold the camera very still and press the shutter button (gently to stop the camera from moving)
  • Once the picture is taken, take a look and see whether you need to move the torch faster/slower or whether you need to increase the exposure length (if you can).
  • A tripod is best for the steadiest results, especially if you can fire it using the self timer, to stop it wobbling!
  • Have fun and keep practicing!
  • Also check the Youtube Video Tutorial at the end of this post!

Here are some much more complicated designs by Disney’s creative guys Matt Stewart and Paul Chase!
