Hoop-tastic Weekend, Part 2

I had a great time playing with my LED hoop this past weekend.  I have the long exposure photos to prove it.  Here are two more really cool shots that I took in addition to the one I shared yesterday.

I like the last one the best because it looks like I’m in a Star Trek transporter.   If you are interested, I have a few more photos posted over on my photography site.  I did take a lot of LED long exposure photos, but I only posted the best ones.

If you are interested in finding out how I did these photos, take a look over on HubPages for my How-To.

In addition to taking a lot of LED hoop photos, I did quite a bit of video too, and most of it I’m unhappy with.  Still, I got one video that I was pleased with.

I had the hardest time thinking of a soundtrack.  I then stopped and listened to what was going on around me.  The sounds of the woods at night are soothing and beautiful.  I let the crickets and locusts serenade me as I hooped to their music.  The video above is the result. Please, enjoy!

Hoop-tastic Weekend, Part 1

I had a fantastic weekend of hooping out in Snow Shoe, PA.  I hooped, I took video, and I got to do a lot of playing around with my LED hoop.  I even bought a kiddie hoop at Snow Shoe’s Dollar General. 

I’m going to break down my hoopy fun in separate posts here, but I thought I’d give you a taste of what’s to come in the next few days.  First, I will tell you about my kiddie hoop.

I know kiddie hoops don’t have much value for adults, but they are fun to toss around, at least I think so.  The hoops were outside the store, and I picked one up and twirled it and did isolations through out the store absentmindedly.  When it came time to check out, the cashier said, jokingly, that if someone is going to buy a hoop, they had to demonstrate that they can use a hoop.  Ha, I thought, and I did some waist hooping in front of the register.  The cashier was impressed.

Here’s the kiddie hoop being hanging of what I like to call “Redneck Hoop Storage.”  Bucky here decorates part of the hunting lodge me and my family were staying in.  I couldn’t resist the urge to “decorate” him.

I did take some videos, but I will get to those another day.  Some were good, others were horrible.  The most fun I had, though, was playing with my LED hoop in a place where there wasn’t too much extra light.  The effects were awesome!

I did long exposures when I did my light painting.  This photo here was specifically done for the light painting effect and not necessarily hooping.  I also did some posing photos with my hoops that I will share later.

I guess since I was flipping the hoop here, it can be considered hooping.  I don’t know.  It’s just a cool photos, really.  I will have more led hooping photos on another day, too.

Stay tuned!  I will have some awesome stuff coming up for you in a few days.
