Lights-a-Whirl



Instead of taking a snapshot of our Christmas tree I decided to play with whirling the lights. I quickly learned that the easiest way to turn the camera in a circular motion is to start with the wrist turned backwards before pressing the button. It feels natural to turn the wrist back to normal position and then just keep turning.

I altered the third image in Photoshop® to make it different. I cropped it vertically, made a duplicate layer and inverted the colors, then experimented with blending modes until I found a color combination that I liked.
