Default Light painting.

Tried Flash / Light painting. One shot for a proof

No other light was used except a flash light with 8 LED's.


For EXIF, please see http://shaperweb.com/gallery/display..._display_media

Any suggestions welcome.

That is definitely a different look. It looks like electric stars floating in the room. How many shots before you got the effect that you wanted?

We did this one evening just after sunset in Palo Duro Canyon last month. We used a couple of spotlights to paint a windmill and had our cameras tripod-mounted on the bulb setting. Once I worked out the right exposure for the background we did several shots and this was the best I was able to get using a 19 second exposure at f11 and ISO 100 as we missed painting a detail or two sufficiently enough on the other shots..

It was my 15-17th shot. I accidentally deleted some good shots in camera while reviewing it. Decided to switch of quick erase setting.

Peru: LOL. Switching off the quick erase is something that I learned the hard way early on. It happens to everybody sooner or later.


Greg: that is a really nice shot of the windmill.
