No Dave Black this time, but instead I was working with Carolyn of CMR Automotive Photography to get these images of a Lotus Evora.
As you can see, the house kind of painted itself in light. The car though, did not! Over the course of two hours, using a variety of hand held 'lighting tools' we took a series of 30 second exposures.
When you are light painting, every exposure is different from the last so you're continually looking at each shot and remembering what you just did so you can improve upon it. Hopefully. But with a finite amount of time and a big scene to paint....time isn't on your side. 30 seconds goes really fast!
With the camera on a tripod set to ISO 100 and f16 and the lens on manual focus, Carolyn and I, with the car owner, too, went about covering the car with light.
Here are the results!
