The photo club I joined had a meet up tonight to do light painting planned. So I wanted to test out what I thought the procedure was before I left so I could get my settings like I wanted them and understand better how the light recorded on the digital image sensor at long exposures. I tried my bulb setting and had thought that I would be able to put it on the timer and it would open the shutter for me. BUT..it doesn't work like that. I just now...as I was typing this...realized why. How do you close it if you open it up with the timer? I would still have to touch the shutter release button to get it to close. So...I ordered a shutter release cable for next time. Anyway...my teenager plays guitar and we got him a beautiful electric blue electric this past Christmas so I pulled it out and used my blue cover over my small flashlight. Post processing was basic levels and curves and then I created a B&W layer underneath the color version and just masked over the color around the guitar so the B&W would shine through.
I can't seem to find my exif reader program to get the settings quickly so I'm just posting it. Plus I'm so darn sleepy so I'm going to bed!
