Light Painting and a Little Extra
April 2, 2012 § 4 Comments
Once again I’ve been playing around with light painting. I bought a brand new flashlight for $8. It’s a stylus type light made by Streamlight. It looks like a ball point pen, only about 2″ longer. It has a small clip-on attachment so you can narrow the beam of light…no more cardboard and tape for this guy! Again, with light painting you just swish the light around the subject, never letting it sit on any one area, or you’ll get a very distinct hot-spot. Also this week, I used a brand new tool from OnOne Software. I have a link to them in a previous blog. This plug-in by the name of “Perfect Effects” has a lot more tools, and some different ones than my old standby, OnOne’s “PhotoTools”. I used some of the monochromatic tools for these two shots. I just experiment with the tools and the blending, until I’m happy with what I have. Hope you enjoy these.
I’m working on a couple of light painted images that I’ll show next time…these will have a lot more color.
