Ready, STEADY, Shoot!

What to do when you have no tripod on want to take a more artistic shot during night time? Have a very steady hand and/or look for something to support your camera against. I did the latter and I suppose the former did help too. 2 seconds of exposure time is quite a long time to keep the camera steady even with some support, which in this case was widening in the lower part of a street lamp. Not too good, since it was rather smooth and in about 45 degree angle. In fact you can see part of it in the lower left corner of the picture.

I rarely have any good opportunities to take any pictures of this kind. I have been playing around with the idea of drawing with light to the photograph but haven’t been able to find a suitable light source to do that. It would need to be small enough for me to be able to draw with it. It should have light bright enough to be visible but dim enough to not … Well, be too bright and ruin the picture. Gotta keep looking for something suitable.
