Slow Shutter Photography by Linda Erf Swift

Today is the last day of the art month! Thanks for watching.

The photographer of this piece said that she makes this style of photograph by working in a dark room with a slow shutter speed and using some sort of flashlight-type device to illuminate the object over the course of the shutter closing. At least, that's how I remember her explanation from an art fair years ago. Looking at it now, I'm not sure how she gets the perfectly black background, but I like the way the object looks, her choice of vintage kitchen implements and tools, and the fact that it is a manually-created effect.
