Light painting

A group of us got together to do this years rounds of light painting .

The first thing is buying proper lighting , you can use fluorescent plastic tubes for the lighting and a good flashlight that will fit in one end of the tube . You can buy colored gels or I’ve personally used a light coat of spray paint .

As far as the camera goes , I think all the photographers involved in this night used different settings and cameras ranged from Fuji , nikons and canons .

As far as my settings , I had my shutter set between 5-8 seconds , my aperture f15-16 and ISO 100-125 . I personally like the silhouette look of the model . If your looking for a shot that shows the model , set aperture at about f8 and work from there .

As far as the models and light holder , the model needs to stay perfectly still during the 8 seconds ( you will see in my photos it’s not easy to do ) it causes blurring or ghostly effects . And the light holder can not stop or they will be seen in the photo .

Here’s the results:
