There are so many ways to create/use artificial lighting and this round I am trying to paint an object in a dark by using a torch light.
Light painting photography - painting objects: Tutorial
How I did the following shots:
- Settings: A table with black surface, a cheap torch light, tripod, remote control for the camera and the object(s)
- Camera settings: Bulb mode, f-stop 22 or higher, ISO-100, Exp 0 or lower... I've even tried Exp -3 and it worked well
- Execution: Start shooting a long exposure by triggering the camera with the remote control. Paint around the object and shine longer at the places you wish to focus on or be brighter.
- Try a few shots, shine/wave torch light from different angles (top, bottom, side etc) and try different time. You will be surprised! :)
|You can even see a little light painting (little swirl) on the top right of the bottle.|
Maybe that's what how I was waving the torch light that way at that time
This is 13 seconds long exposure with more emphasis in front
|50mm lens f/22 ISO 100 11 sec Exp 0 |
