Cameras were fixed to tripods and were set to Manual. The cameras were also set for long exposures of 15 to 30 seconds. Flashes were turned off sometimes and on at other times. Usually we stood behind our subjects, torches pointing towards the camera. We would quickly paint the subject person with the illuminated torches, then run to the back of the camera to see what results we had.
There was great excitement amongst the participants! We ended up with pictures of angels and Jedi type warriors and all manner of things. Some very interesting portraits were produced.
I went on to experimenting at home with mannequins in my studio. I hope you find the results interesting. I have selected a couple of the best pictures to show you. If you want to see more, check out my Flickr site at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/christine_a_turner/
