Painting With Light

Freya and I went to Hatfield Forest yesterday evening with the Dunmow Photography Club for a painting with light session. We got some mixed results but it was good experience, which should help us improve the next time we try it.

One from Freya




And one from me

Re: Painting With Light

What a great experience John. I would have loved to have been with you two.
They are two great shots. The second really is a stand-out.
You must learn so much from an outing like this.

Re: Painting With Light

The second shot works well for me, John.

Even a few stars to light up the night.

It's a great shame about the light pollution. Where we live it creates a gastly orange cast to the night sky in every direction.

Yes generally I would agree, we have the same problem where we live but I think it adds something positive in the case of your image.

Re: Painting With Light

I really like the second one especially. The night stars help give depth. What did you use for illumination?

Re: Painting With Light

They both work for me and the light pollution helps. It is painting with light after all.

Illumination was by a powerful hand torch used by the organiser of the event. I would guess that around 20 people got a similar image to this. Certainly Freya did, except that hers was out of focus. She locked focus on the tree during a test illumination then switched to manual focus for shots of this scene, but for some reason it didn't work. Her exposure was almost identical, because we had our cameras on the same settings and I judged the amount of time using the Live Time display on my E-M5, telling her when to release Bulb on her E-510. One thing I did notice was that the image seemed to appear brighter on the LCD during Live Time than it actually was.
