Lights Trace Hand Motions (Mar, 1945)

Lights Trace Hand Motions

COMMON actions, such as lighting a cigarette or tying a shoelace, involve a surprising amount of complicated hand movement. Photographer David McLane proves it by attaching lights, as at right, to the wrists of a subject, who performs the action before a camera in a darkened room. After the pattern has been traced on the film, he makes another exposure with a flash bulb to light up the subject.
