    Last night I went on a cruise around Cairns's foreshore. This provided a great opportunity to play with the App NightCap. What I wanted to do is exploit the apps 1sec exposure capability and create some light painting using the cities lights.
    Here are some examples of different patterns I made by hitting the shutter release whilst moving the iPhone. The last example is of all three combined in DXP using the Difference setting.

    Thanks Lisa, I think they could be blended with other pics quite well.

    Cool!

    I think these can stand alone as fab abstracts, or mix really well with other photos.

    The Moscow circus is in town, I would've taken my son but he has a hard time sitting in one place for to long. So I decided to bring the circus to him, with a fire twirling show. He was very impressed.

    Thought I'd add one of the above shots to the light play series in DXP.

    Really cool idea, Aaron. Must admit my instinctive reaction with apps like Night Cap is to lock them down hard so that nothing moves the iPhone. This frees them up to create amazing light patterns.

    Thanks Richard, it was Chris's talk of the 1 second shutter speed in NightCap that got me excited and his explanation of why Slow Shutter wasn't real slow shutter. For this series I've both locked the camera down and moved it around to create the light blur effects.

    These pics show something that wasn't possible before NightCap 1sec shutter was created, I'll have to try different light sources for the light painting.
