arrow tracks

    Newer Older

    I had fun yesterday night doing light painting again. This time I wanted more light shapes than I usually use, so I created 2 new light sources. One is made from a neon tube that you can get in home decoration shops, and the other is a cardboard made arrow mounted on my flash. The results are quite interesting. It's of course quite abstract again but I really like the graphical aspect brought by the arrows in this series of photo.

      For the arrows, I use a flash (not mounted on the camera), with a cardboard box around it with a arrow-shaped hole in the middle. Then I fire the flash whenever I want with the strobe test button.

      Please don't take this wrong, but why go to this trouble when you could Photoshop the arrows in later without the set-up effort? I like the effect, but I would create it using post work.

      going to all that trouble to get some effect done in camera is what this art is all about. try it it is addictive!

      @captargh7: my point of view is just like gaijin303's. Doing light painting is really fun and addictive! You'll find yourself having a lot more fun and inspiration than by simply seating in front of the computer with photoshop. At least that's my view.
      I agree however that this very photo does not bring much compared to what could have been done on a computer, but with light painting, you can really go further than that: including people in the shot is one idea, but if you have a look at this or this, you'll see what's possible.
      Anyway, thanks all for the comments.
