yeah well duhh..

but what I wanna know is if the CP area actually affects the light painting 'strip' ?

ill just try it and find out for myself i think


There is a fine point on my CP where the light is slightly dulled & where the reflections are taken away. If I can get it right in the middle I can get a non-reflective surface and the light strip. Re-reading my previous statement did sound kind of dumb.

Is lightpainting overdone now?
I could have lightpainted this yesterday, but decided to light with strobes...

IMO it's really just coming into its own although it'll never replace natural light/ strobes/ studio. I envisage lighting specialists and photographers getting more canny with their techniques, either to conceal the LP or to mix lighting styles.

It'll remain pretty niche because it's too damn time consuming and you can only do it at night. Find a way around those obstacles and it'll take off.

For your shot, with the light trails in the bg, neat lightpainted highlights on the car would've worked well but considering the circumstances you/ the strobes have done a fair job. I love catching that last hint of twilight.

- > front of the car & lower bumper
- > top of the car and hood
- > full over the top of the car
---
and as an added > i like to do reflections in and through the windows - because well i sort of like that effect (but only sometimes)

What was the problem - dark car colour or fighting ambient light?

i light paint with fire?

here is a problem... lightpainting is the new HDR... just because the car is lightpainted doesn't make the photo good... I done my share of crappy locations... and i know that locations is something I struggle with.... but come on guys... location is just as important as everything else... it's a whole thing.. the package.

I agree with what you've said there...

I want to lightpaint with fire, but just know that I'd end up setting myself on fire whistle.gif

^ I have seen his work before... and I always liked it. My only concern now that I know a bit more is that the lighting on the overall image is a bit all over the place. Specially the floor... but regarless I shouldn't talk because I haven't done anything that big. So, hats off... I would LOVE to try something like that. smile.gif


The train shoot is AWESOME!

First attempt.
I would appreciate impressions, indications, like, not like and all what you all guys are thinking watching the pic.
I'm quite happy about the result: post prod is 5 mins...the colours were cool in my opinion so I decided to try a lightpainting of my car.

Daniele - the background is incredible, especially the sky smile.gif The car is quite sloppy though. The big highlight over the bonnet and windscreen is doing nothing to add to the image and isn't showing the lines of the car. What I would suggest is making the line thinner and pick out the details of the car as the elise has lots of nice details and lines. Also, and this is a personal thing, I'd quite like it if the headlights were on smile.gif

Hope this helps a little smile.gif
