I took these pictures on a camping trip with friends this summer. The kids had sparklers and were dancing around with them. The first few pics I took I used my flash to try and capture the kids but the results were rather dull and boring. So instead I tried to capture the magic of the sparklers. I had the kids make shapes and lines while I snapped a few shots using long exposures of 4-6 secs. Kind of like light painting but a little messier and less organized. Oh and the purplish glow you see, is the glow necklaces the kids were wearing.
