Our Project 12 theme this month was Alternative Lighting. I had first started out photographing my boys at the beach in full sun, using my flash as fill. It was fun to do, but not quite as “alternative” as we were discussing! I joined Allison at her house with our boys and tried out some sparklers. We all had fun – but who knew sparklers had such short lifespans?! They worked, but barely. They did give off a nice glow that illuminated their faces with a nice warm light – perfect for the challenge. I am excited to try this again with some nice and powerful sparklers!
