C. Edward Brice did this little experiment, from scratch, using my one-second light-painting technique. In this 18 minutes video, he is covering most of the effects I'm using
As a first experiment, results are very interesting. In an answer to this video, here's a few key point to get better results:
- look at the effect of the light on the model. This technique is not about light-painting. It's about getting studio-quality light on the model by using light-painting. That means that the trail of light is secondary. The priority is to get a well lit and perfectly sharp picture. Check this quick 15 second clip where you clearly see that the subject will be properly lit just by testing the angle
- use a remote control to trigger the camera and set the exposure time to bulb-mode so you can control for how long the picture will be taken. With a less powerful light, you will need a longer exposure.
- when using the colored metallic sheet, try to have a smaller portion of the sheet being directly hit by the light. Try to use the reflection of the light instead, so you'll get much more color, and less blown (pure white) parts.
