A spot of light painting in Derbyshire

In deepest darkest Derbyshire on a cold wet evening this happened!



















All down to the organisation of Andy Cooper at the Beaurepaire Camera Club and the local experts Stephen Elliott and Andrew Mycock who set it all up and patiently explained how live time worked!

Re: A spot of light painting in Derbyshire

Good results; isn't this a good use of the live composite functionality rather than live time or did you use both techniques?

Truly awesome. Good control by the light painter(s).

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.

Great colours and designs there Phill.
Last week one member gave a light painting demo using a bicycle wheel and other props. Fun stuff.
