Wow! Simple but such a great idea! I love how the light reflects off the balls into a spiral! Nice! Hmm? Homework? U go to college for light painting or something? Anyway u should check out my light painting vid. [link]
This is really cool. I guess I'm pretty slow but I've just learned about light painting and I love it. Just tried to do a few with my cheap point and shoot and cellphone light. Not great but not bad lol. I love how you used those orbs for the reflection. Very awesome. Saw a previous comment about a mirror. I am definitely going to try that.
The spirals are freehand, but what you don't see are the "too many to view" shots where something didn't "pan-out"! It may sound cliched but it really is patience & luck. I did find having a brighter light source enabld me to drop the exposure time and this may help the "smoothness". I used a "maglight" type torch from B&Q hardware store with the bulb exposed. It used 2 AA size batteries. Good luck with the next shots
Thank you for the comment it is much apprecaited - and sorry for taking so long to reply shoddy, shoddy! Light source was a "maglite" type torch from B&Q hardware store. You can unscrew the "head" to reveal the bare bulb. They come in a few sizes, the one in this shot took 2 AA batteries. I hope this is of some help.
Thank you. I am sure the Canon S5is has manual settings, just start with a 30 second exposure and aperture F8 and see what happens. It's fun to play with longer exposures and different apertures just to see what happens. Good luck
Hey, thank you for the . It seems like a hundred years ago since I did those - and I don't know if I have learned anything since Once I get the project work for my AS course done (gotta be in for 21st April !!) then I hope to get into "playing" with the camera.
I'm doing an AS AQA part-time course. Exam project will be "recording objects" so lots of "Heath Robinson" set-up's in the kitchen trying to capture water drops etc. Previous two projects, forcourse work, were on Paths and Chaos/Order. What exam board are you with ?
