I never really done much light painting before, always liked the idea of it but somehow have just never got round to it, or found the right subject for it. Also I’m not hugely keen on wandering about in the dark, tripping over all the crap I have left lying around on the studio floor (note to self: tidy up floor!).
Anyway a couple of weekends ago I was playing about with some ideas for a new portfolio shot involving a wall clock. Now this clock happens to look a bit like a pocket watch and a pocket watch normally has a chain (see where I’m going with this yet?), so I figured, “what if instead of a chain, I use some wispy light trails”.
