The second and final shot in the series of objects from around the house – thought this little statue might be a nice candidate for a little bit of light painting. This was a little trickier than I thought it would be due to the fact that the surface is shiny.
Tried painting several objects around the house last night – thought this one was interesting with the curves. Painted with a small torch.
I don’t mean I’m turning a corner in my life… I mean literally driving around a corner at Punches Cross, here in Limerick. The camera was mounted on a superclamp with double ball head, on the roof rail of the five. I actually can’t claim this one as my own, because technically Kev pressed the button! I did have an input (the camera, mount, car, diesel and driver), but Kev took the photo.
Unfortunately this has given me a taste for rig shots… if anyone feels like donating some money to the fund, you know how to contact me!And if anyone has a spare 10-20mm lens going cheap – I know of a good home for it!! 😉
Thanks to Kev for the advice and generally putting expensive bad ideas in my head!
Happy May Day!?!
With the help of my niece, Azra, I washed my car yesterday evening and decided to take a few photos for an assignment on boards. I ran around the car with two torches – one Halogen, one LED to light the car up (hence the patchy looking paint work).
This the fifth shot in a series of photos of same burnt out Micra taken at night. This is taken from the back of the car. The light trail to the left was me walking away with the torch. Unfortunately this is completely out of focus – I moved the camera and forgot to focus again. 🙁
This the fourth shot in a series of photos of same burnt out Micra taken at night. This time the car is painted using the led wand. The red tint is from the tail lights of the five.
This the third shot in a series of photos of same burnt out Micra taken at night. This image is just painted with a small halogen torch. The inside of the car is lit by an LED wand torch.
This is part of a series of shots of same burnt out Micra taken at night. I lit the inside of the car with an LED wand torch and drew the outline (badly) with a small handheld halogen torch. The red glow is from the tail lights of my five.
This is the last shot in the series. Again, this is a six second exposure, but this time I was using a small BMW torch out of the glove box.
This is a slightly abstract shot – a six second exposure taken in the dark. I used a mini-maglite as the light source. I also zoomed out during the shot. I’d be tempted to try this again using a few different light sources.
Another shot of the car – this time it’s one of the BMW Motorsport (///M) branded sill protectors (kick plates to you and me). I was getting out of the car and just happened to be thinking what a state it was in. This shot prompted me to take a series of other shots of the car, which I will post over the next day or two.
