When in lockdown, you gotta work with what you’ve got. And even if you’re not in lockdown, it’s always fun to make photography props and gadgets from stuff you have lying around the house. Jason D. Page teamed up with Jason Rinehart to create a light painting tool from something I’m sure we all have at home: a plastic bottle and some tape.
With light painting, the options for creating artwork are virtually endless. But have you ever considered adding Polaroid to the equation? It’s another interesting way of creating light paintings, and you’ll get some unique film images that we don’t see so often on instant film. In this great video tutorial, Jason D. Page will show you how to do it and give you some of his examples of Polaroid light painting portraits.
First, it’s not a real skull, don’t worry. But Jason D. Page over at Light Painting Brushes did manage to find a good looking one at his local Home Depot. With Halloween coming up, he thought what better than to light paint to create a spooky Halloween image?
Naturally, Jason made a video showing us how he made the image, and how we can make one for ourselves. In the video, Jason walks you through his process, the gear, the final technique and the timing for the long exposure shots.
As long as you have your camera and some lights, you can never be bored. There are countless images you can create with light painting, and the only limit is your imagination. But if you need some inspiration to get you started, Jason D. Page has an awesome tutorial for you. In this video, he creates a photo of a “time traveler.” All he uses are a few simple props and some lights, and it’s all done in-camera.
Light painting is something we truly love here at DIYP. It’s also an ideal pastime now that travels and social activities are limited. Grab your camera, tripod, and lights – and you don’t have to leave your home to great magical, dreamy, even surreal scenes.
In this video, Jason D. Page has a great tutorial for you. He shows you how to create a dreamy sailboat scene entirely in-camera. The end results look like paintings, and in a way, they are: after all, they were painted with light.
Have you ever had the feeling that you predicted the future by something you’d photographed? With this light painting image, it seems like Jason D. Page knew something before the rest of us. He took this photo as a single frame, using different tools from Light Painting Brushes. He recently published it and noted that it looks a lot like coronavirus. The funny thing is that it wasn’t inspired by the current situation – it was taken two years before it!
Light painting photography opens a bunch of creative opportunities and it can keep you creative and entertained for hours. Just what we need right now, right? If you’ve always wanted to try it out, you can start with minimum gear and easily shoot light painting images on your phone. In this video, Jason D. Page will show you how and he’ll give you a few tips and ideas to help you get started.
Around two weeks ago, I saw an epic photo Jason D. Page posted to Facebook, crediting Tim Gamble for the idea. Both of them made their photos with aluminum foil (tin foil) and some lights, and I knew I wanted to try the technique immediately!
I reached out to them and they kindly shared the process with me. It turned out to be pretty simple, so I even skipped a Saturday night out to stay at home and take photos. I didn’t regret it. Considering that many of us are currently in self-isolation, I think this is a great project to try: it’s simple, you have everything you need at home, and the possibilities are virtually endless. So, let’s dive in and see what you need and how to do it.
Jason D. Page is known for his surreal, enchanting light painting photos. Even though many of them almost look like digital art, they were all actually created in-camera. And if you ask me, it makes them even more impressive.
With his latest series, Jason has done it again. He’s created a series of surreal images that were shot entirely in-camera, using clever light-painting techniques. In the video below, he takes you behind the scenes to show you how he did it.
Photographer Jason D. Page recently shared with us some of amazing light painting portraits he created along with his team. Photographing people this way can be quite a challenge, especially if you want to create the shots in one take. As you can imagine, keeping the subject sharp is pretty difficult when you’re shooting in the pitch-black environment. In this video, Jason shares his techniques which will help you to keep the subject sharp and nail focus every time when shooting light painting portraits.
