Win my favorite light-painting tool - last give-away contest

07 Jul 2014

*** NEW Youtube channel: ***

This week I have another unit of my ultra-powerful mini 300 lumens flashlight plus the solar-wind tool to give away. It's my last one to give away.

Simply share this page on Facebook (privacy should be set to public so I can see it), and fill the form below to enter the contest. The winner will be announced on July 14th, 2014. You will also receive the tool to create this effect. Full technique on how to use it is explained on Mixing light-painting and digital imagery with Mike Campau


Contest deadline: July 14th, 8pm, NY time.

Picture credits: Model: Audrey Genest. Stylist: Ariane Foisy. Inspired by Paul Walters metallic skin technique.

If you have never seen my work before, here's a little explanation on how it's made: The only source of light is the one in my hand. I always use a one second exposure time, and I draw the light by hand, revealing the model, while creating the shape of light. Most of the time, nothing is added digitally. In the case of the picture above, even the floor is lit by the same movement, thus getting a perfectly matching result between the shape, the light on the subject, and the spotlight. Complete documentary is available here.

Also, if you're not aware of the existance of xangle yet, make sure you follow us on our Facebook page, where we'll give you all the info about upcoming events and official app launch date. 


Winner: Rob Compton (UK). Next contest will be held in early September and will be completely different.
