My name is Anindo Rudro from Chittagong, Bangladesh. I’ve been doing miniature photography for about 5 years now. I’ve seen so many miniature photographs which are done by high-end light setups and cameras. People always think about buying them but can’t afford them. They think it’s impossible to gain the same output without this high-end equipment. And from the very beginning, I tried to create the same output with low budget gear.

So in this new series, I’m going to show you guys how to get those amazing photographs only using mobile LED lights and a slow shutter. Which we may call light panning or light painting.

My device was Canon 700D and an 18-55mm lens, and an android mobile for LED lights.

Behind the scenes

Here, for these miniature scenes, I did not use LED lighting/Speed lights, preferring to distribute cyan color in my pictures. I used cyan color wallpapers to give a dramatic effect to the photo. As you can see I was panning the light source on my subject from every direction to distribute the light on my subjects.

Here I used blue and red color wallpaper for distributing the light on my subject at a time for a dramatic effect.
