Photography in its most literal definition is "to paint with light." In essence all it is, is placing some form of light on to a surface that is sensitive to light, like a digital sensor or film in your camera or perhaps light sensitive photo paper in the darkroom. How you go about doing it - well, that is the creation of your art.
The suggestion is to start small, until your creative mechanics start moving and you're running at full speed with ideas.
What you'll need:
- A camera with a long shutter speed or bulb setting with at least 10 seconds.
- A tripod.
- A light source such as a flashlight, glow in the dark objects or lazor pen.

It takes some practice but after a while you'll be whipping out your flashlight at every event.
