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.
RECENTLY: I’m in the United States, and we’re not allowed to enter most other countries because we did a horrible job with a global virus.
TWO OR THREE YEARS AGO: “Hey Frodo, I think we should collaborate on a project where you’re in Spain and I’m in the USA and we make an art piece together”
TONIGHT: Hmmmm, I can do the thing with Frodo and I’ll be able to team up with a light painter from another country. Let’s finally do it!!
I was originally inspired to do this because when I had down it with a drone I had a troll complain that the images weren’t clear enough. In my response to this, I surmised a way, with the help of Dan Roberts, to be able to hang my camera from the ceiling and get clear images.
In order to to get surreal like images that look like your camera is hanging in the air without a drone and get a clean image this is how you do it! Now full disclosure I have the blessing of being in a space with 14ft ceilings that allow me to get this much room with a 24mm lens.
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.
Sometimes, aimless scrolling through your Facebook feed has its purpose. While I was doing it a few days ago, an amazing light photo stole all my attention and made my jaw drop. After admiring it for a while, I decided to get in touch with Sergey Savenko, the young photographer who took it. So, I am sharing this surreal photo with you, as well as some details Sergey kindly shared about 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.
