Light ninting and Vogue aren’t two words that you usually associate with one another. But for the May 2015 cover of British Vogue, photographer Paolo Roversi photographed Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke using an interesting light painting technique. [Read more…]
It’s been done once, but as with almost any world record, it’s inevitable it will be done time and time again, with each new attempt more grandiose than the last.
We’re talking light painting orbs. Last time we covered the Guinness World Record for most light orbs in an image it was from the The East Coast Light Painting group. This time, it’s a group of six India-based men who upped the ante, from 200 light orbs to 900. [Read more…]
If an amazing light painting portrait has caught your eye sometime over the last few years, you’ve probably seen the work of Montréal, based visual artist Eric Paré.
Since then Eric and his long time collaborator Kim Henry have been busy traveling the world combining dance, environmental portraiture, and light painting with gorgeous results (check out Eric’s 500px portfolio here and his work with Adobe Max here).
I recently had the opportunity to catch up with Eric and Kim in Toronto where they were presenting a Creative Photography and Light Painting Workshop…
Photographer Eric Pare (previously) is always pushing his 1 second light painting technique, and it is quite interesting to see what results you can achieve when you are imposing creative limits on yourself.
Being limited to roughly 1 second, Eric wanted to try something new for Adobe Max and created one of the simplest, yet powerful lighting painting tool that I have seen.
Eric used a $25 LED strip zip-tied to a broomstick to create a straight line of small LEDs. Aside the symmetrical patterns, those LEDs also change colors so the results are pretty RAD.
If you want to try something different this Halloween, how about trying some light painting portraits with your kids?
Its easier than you think, and I’ll show you how its done in this article.
Spirographs are a unique form of light painting where a mesmerizing patterns is being light painting into the sensor. It is kinda the adult version of this kids art game. Interestingly, Spirographs are really easy to create and only require a flashlight, a camera and a dark room.
Jason D. Page just put together a complete guide on creating those magical being. Here is a quick 3 steps guide followed by Jason’s full guide.
Brazillian photographer, Vitor Shietti, has been working with light painting and incorporating it into the natural surrounding. Schietti takes to both the countryside and the city to capture his images, which complement things such as bodies of water and trees in a pretty interesting way. At times the light painting resembles a dense spiderweb entombing a tree, while other times it looks like a gentle, soaking rain shower. Either way, they really encourage you to get in there for a closer look–fascinating! [Read more…]
After yesterday’s Pinhole Bonanza, I am proud to serve you the Battlefield Pinhole Camera DIY tutorial.
The battlefield is a revolutionary pinhole camera that simultaneously uses 3 rolls of 35mm film to capture an image split across all three rolls. Look at the image on the left for a clue on the name origin 🙂
This tut has lots of details and is somewhat technical, so we will jump between images, videos and text, using the best method (or methods) to illustrate each step. Try and keep up. [Read more…]
Eric Pare (previously) just sent in this killer light painting tip. I really enjoy following Eric’s work because he is right there on the verge of science and art. This time he came up with a very clever light saber toy for light painting.
Eric is using tube guards, which are originally meant for florescent bulb protection, as a light painting medium and the results are quit epic:
I recently bought a new pair of shoes and before I use them and get them all dirty (as I always do in two seconds), I wanted to play around with them for a bit. Here is a step by step tutorial on how I made the shoes looks so fine. I tried to shoot them as straight out of the camera as possible, there is just some very minor editing to be done at the end.
