I want to experiment with taking photos of my kids blowing glitter toward the camera. It’s going to be a rainy week where I live, so I’m going to have to wait for a sunny day. I feel like it would be a cute photo to have them wearing green shirts and blowing gold glitter – it feels very appropriate for March.

I found these 2 sets of instructions and noticed that each photographer used entirely different settings. So this will probably take some experimenting, but it could be fun and something we can do in our back yard. Both sets of instructions require a DSLR camera.

Detailed blog post at Moosh in Indy here.

Or, this YouTube video. In the YouTube video it appears that he had the best results with a 50mm lens, 1/1000 second, F1.2, ISO 100.

I hope you give this a try!
