"All You Need Is Love"

Love "All You Need Is Love"

Here is a really fun image from this past weekend's wedding. Near the end of the evening, I asked four of the wedding party members to volunteer for this shot.  I gave each of them a small LED flash-light. I picked up these inexpensive flash lights at Micro Center for a buck each.  Each person traced out the letter during the 5 second time exposure.  I queued my assistant to flash them with my Quantum at the end of the exposure. Just a fun shot that I believe the couple will really enjoy.  Camera specs; Canon 5D Mark II fitted with 24-105mm IS lens at 35mm, F22 @ 5 seconds, ISO 1250. Enjoy!  -David


  1. A novel idea. Would like to see a movie tutorial on this.


  2. Very creative Mr. Ziser!

    Did you use a tripod? Do you even own a tripod? :-)

  3. Just goes to show the 5D mk2 can focus in near darkness, love it, great imagination.

  4. Thanks to all for the nice comments. Yes, Gene, I did use a tripod on this one. -David
