Light Guitar

This is by no means original. I saw something very similar to this last week which made me want to play around with some longer exposures. So, this evening, I got out my wife's guitar and my mini-mag light and went to work.

It wasn't until I sat down at my computer tonight that I noticed the theme of music, so this one plays (pun intended) really well into the theme for this week.

7 exposures, stacked together, each between 56 to 10 seconds in length.

Please view large on the black background.
Very Cool Paul! I'm gonna have to give this a shot sometime. Nice theme shot.

Awesome...not sure how you stack 7 layers...multiply? As you might add a texture?does that bring out the color? What would just 1 look like?

Wow! This looks awesome, Paul! This should be a great theme week for you. I know your family is very music oriented.

@jgpittenger I used PS Elements to merge all seven shots together. I used the flashlight to highlight different areas of the guitar, including one where I put the flashlight inside the guitar.

I love your theme shots! This is so perfect for Music--especially since you didn't know the theme! I think there is some snap magic going on here! :-)

Looked at this last night but was too brain tired to think about it. I love the idea and the execution. Very artistic! The additions really give it a sense of depth.

I must experiment with this technique! Very cool! This may be a silly question, but how did you get blue light?

@parkerriverkid The small flashlight I use has a bluish tone to it. That, plus I think the White Balance is a little off because of the underexposure of the shot.
