Painting With Light

posted on: February 27, 2007

Today I hosted a demonstration for photographers on painting with light. Unfortunately I didn't get to take as many pictures as I would have liked, but I did manage to come away with two really cool shots (pictured below). I just loooove painting with light. It's not often that I get to spend time just playing with light- so today was a total treat for me to just have fun experimenting!!!



These were shot at the Mavris Arts & Cultural Center in Indianapolis, IN.

    those are awesome shots anne! buddy there looks really ghostly... could be creepy if you wanted, but otherwise is just really cool... eerie... (maybe it's me and i'm in a dark mood, but i like it!)

    By the way, I was fearing a post about Thomas Kinkade when I saw the title of this feed... ;)

    What exactly is "painting with light?"

  5. Thanks so much!!! Isn't the look just stinkin' cool?! I love moody images!

    Painting with light is just as it sounds. You start with a subject in a completely dark room and you "paint" light into the image by using a long shutter, high aperture, low ISO, a tripod, and a source of light which can be controled. In the examples here, I used a video light with a "snoot" to focus the light on Amanda, and a blueish mag light with snoot to paint light onto Denis. The cool thing is that you can add as much or as little light as you want, and it can be done however you want. I'm sure if you do a little research, you'll come up with a lot of different ways of approaching it.

    Definitely NOT Kinkade! ;)
