Well now, this certainly puts my fiance's restaurant proposal to shame. Boy Derick proposed to girl Emily using a spotlight, DSLR and three nights, creating a spectacular light writing proposal.
Along with several friends, two Canon 7D cameras were used by Derick to create the proposal—one on the ground, one from a hotel room looking out across the scene—with the ground camera using a Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens. Dragon Stop Motion was used to superimpose the light writing image over the live view from the ground camera, with the video shown a few days later to the happy Emily.
