Light Painting experiment 1 May 20 2014

This is my first attempt at light painting. Inspired by several photographers on Youtube, I decided to give it a try. Using a mag-lite mini, some dominos and lots of patience. I was able to grab a few good shots. My settings on the camera are Manual mode, manual focus, ISO 100, Long exposure setting of 20 to 30 seconds. Canon dslr T3i and a tripod.

    Nice job! Mind if I ask a few questions? How many shots did you shoot to get these? In other words are there a lot of throwaways? Also, did you shine the light through the gel onto the dominoes? Or shine the light through the gel with the light itself in the shot? I am assuming the latter…if so, did you have to ensure that the light never shoots directly into the lens? If so, how did you do it?

    • Thank you- the first couple of shots to get my settings I did not keep- so about 5 to 6 I did not keep- Yes- I put the gel directly in front of the flash light holding it in place, then shined the light onto the dominos- moving it in a moderate fashion being careful not to strike the dominos until the exposure was complete. And yes never completely in front of the len otherwise it will show up as a blown out dot instead of a light trail. Hope this helps- if you need more info feelmfree to ask I will be more than happy to answer any questions. Thanks again for checking it out.

  3. I really like these. They have something of an atmosphere about them.
