Re: A spot of light painting in Derbyshire

The two guys we had running the session are definitely enthusiastic experts who have built up quite a lot of specialist gear. Some of it very clever and very cheap home built items and some bought specially at a bit more expense but still not exorbitant if you are serious about light painting. I'm sure Stephen Elliott and Andrew Mycock would be more than willing to do workshops for any group interested. FB will find them. (actually they will also be on the Kase Filters stand C73 at the photo show at the NEC) As for how these were done I wont say too much but a lot is also down to the skills that the guys have gained in actually trying this out. Knowing what controlled movements do in terms of finished images is a big part of the skill. Mark #1 was done with light sticks similar to Star Wars light sabres actually and #6 was done with a bendable version and slow deliberate movements. Chris yes live composite would also work for this sort of work but we only used live time as it was enough for what we wanted. There were some Canon guys there as well and they just used the bulb setting. It worked just as well but they had to wait to see what they'd got until after each shot.
