The Saint

Newer Older

I've seen some awesome pictures where people have light painted match stick figures. So I thought I'd have a go, very basic. Used a flash with blue gel to give the impression of watching TV.
I wish I'd added a Halo just like The saint.

Strobist info:
Shot was taken in dark room, only light was the flash and torch.

Canon 7D: 30mm Sigma @ 30sec F:9

Strobe: YN460 @ 1/1
Blue Gel
Fired via a Cactus v4.

    Excellent. I really like the fact that he is reflected in the floor. What type of torch do you use for this? And what direction are you actually shining it? Presumably not into the lens of the camera?

    Hey Ian,

    It's dead simple and the torch is a £2.99 LED one. It's at about 45* to the camera. Shining from sofa left to right. Give it a go, they do seem to work better outside.
