I have this giant roll of vinyl I purchased for a separate art/photo project requiring me to painstakingly cut hundreds of thin strips of it. I haven't made a dent (hey, the last thing I want to do at the end of the day is use scissors repetitively, but sometimes I'm feeling ambitious) so I wanted to utilize the vinyl in long exposures to see what kind of effects it would make.

At 5am we set up a tripod and my boyfriend & I took turns waving a 4x5 sheet of vinyl in front of and behind us. I set up one of my portable lights to reflect off of the material. 30s exposure, at half-way we introduced the vinyl with rapid movements.

Not a great photo (or pose), but a great attempt at a cool effect. We'll be retrying it this Saturday.
