No, I’m not really a Batman fan. But I think this is oh, so adorable. : )

I love playing with light. A whole bunch. This is one of my favorite experimentations with it. I lit a candle, made my little brother put his Batman costume on, and placed him next to the light. I had to set up my tripod for this one, since I was shooting at night. Since it was rather dark out, I had to work with a slower shutter speed and pray that my brother wouldn’t move. : P
Well, he did. But I managed to get at least one really good picture before he lost his concentration.
Probably my favorite abstract technique is panning. Essentially, you set the camera to a longer shutter speed and spin, zoom, and/or move the camera to get a blurred, streaked look. I love it.
One of the things that’s really fun [but ohmygosh, so hard] to do is move the camera at the same rate as your subject to make the subject sharp and the background blurred.
In this photo, my little brother was [not unusually] running around in his Robin costume. So I decided to make him run back and forth for about a half hour. This is the best result, and I’m rather pleased with it. : )
