I have a 5 year old Point and Shoot (Nikon 4600). Though it has very limited capabilities , I have been learning lot of things related to photography from it.
I was trying to make some long exposure photos in the dark with a very faint light source. This is to make those fancy looking art images. I was just trying to draw English alphabets.
Since the camera has a maximum exposure setting of just +2 seconds, I move the camera instead of the light source to create art forms, or in this case, alphabets. I see that the images look inverted. So I eventually visualize a mirror image of the letter and move the camera accordingly so that the output comes as a normal image.
Why does this happen?
