    I opened the shutter in (almost) complete darkness, went in front of the camera. With a torch (small but quite powerful, 60 lumens if i'm not wrong) I wrote in the air ("Buon Natale" -> "Merry Christmas"). Then I turned off the torch, and sitting at the desk, I clicked on the light meter that was connected to the flash, so that it fired once. Then again in darkness I closed the shutter.

    The words in the air come out right because I printed inverting the negative. That's why you should see that other words in the picture are inverted. Actually the scan is quite crappy, it doesn't give justice to the photo, which instead is fairly sharp in the details.

    Quite tricky, but real fun to try!
