Thread: Lightpaint: Sundae Cone

  1. #1

    Default Lightpaint: Sundae Cone

    My attempt at lightpainting.
    Pity my angle is too straight-on so the effect became 2D. But if angled, it may also become too confusing though..

    Great fun and will try lots more idea and different light source. (in this pic is a keychain flashlight)
    Any enthusiast out there?



    Jellyfish.
    There is an Ikea stool underneath, so that the height can be constant.

    idea in first is nicely done, but you can consider at least painting the rim of the glass, so that it looks more like a proper glass.

    i would also do something about the puddles at the bottom, or patches, whatever they are.

    anyways, light painting is very fun, takes a lot of effort and tries to get it right though, so keep shooting and have fun, most importantly.

    Of course, people are already using all sorts of lights be they sparklers, open flame, bike lights, LED from toys or even DIYed rows of LED.

    Hope more people interested to experiment..
    Yah night86mare, takes much effort, maybe if done in aircon room will be much better...lol

    Very nice jelly fish.

    In the 80s, attended a photo-seminar organized by Kodak, speaker from US, one image that strike me deep in mind is a shot ( product ) of a shoe ad. The photographer manage to paint the all the edges of the shoe box and made them like glowing together with the product. He must have fix the light on some device which can move steady across the edge with precision.

    Results of light painting are surprising but most are disappointing, needs a lot of practice and patience, but it's cheap, doing it without leaving one's place or spend a cent.

    hope you are recovering better.

    Thks all for comments..
    In the 80s?wow, I only discovered lightpainting like last week...lol.But glad that theres quite a community doing this overseas.

    Not sure how does the shoe ad looks, but painting edges actually sounds like the easier technique. Its really painting things without the object present that will really take some effort. Eg, painting a stick figure without a person in place to guage where the joints are..

    To paint something more complex can actually be planned on paper I reckon. Pity I hardly see any lightpainting works on CS, otherwise we can get-together..

    Oh thks for asking abt my Chickenpox,haha, still on mc, wk3 now, and my wife has got it! She wasnt sure if she has got it previously, guess not...haiz.

    Guys I have not been out of my house much for 2+ wks!!lol

    sounds like one month confinement
    however, think I'd work out the solution, perhaps the photographer had rest his light on a straight edge ,like a ruler or cardboard and slide/glide the light along.
    while painting of stick figure, here is my thought/idea, not sure it will work, but can try. Using those glow paint marker or something, draw the figure on a black card and with lights off, just follow it and go over, I suppose the glow of the light will cover the paint marker.

    most difficult will be light painting of a portrait, saw some sample done by those light painting master, not very astonishing but something different from conventional portraiture. In the 80s, pictures like this will stir a big hu-ha in the photo community.

    milk, tofu, almond, beancurd water is what you need most to get back that skin complexion.

    cheers

    cabbySHE,
    hmm using black card could be a great idea. But must be careful not to take the randomness of lightpainting out of it altogether..lol I reckon not knowing what you get is part of the fun..haha. Will try it though,thks.

    However, I saw this and realized its much easy than stick figures cause the path does not meet;which is the main problems with stick figures. This will be much easier.

    Junha0,
    I set to BULB and uses a remote shutter release,instead of self-timer to close it when I'm done painting.

    Haha, I also didnt know the jellyfish took so long to paint, till I just looked..lol
    A pity the fat legs of the ikea stool hid all the strands in the back. Point noted, should use something else instead.

    a bar stool might be better, that guy you mentioned, it floats, but need a large open dark space. Can write message too, actually nothing confine light painting except it's got to be done in a dark/dim environment.

    a camera, tripod and a small LED torch....and the fun begins.

    basically there are two types of light painting, one is using a light source to create light trail, which the light source is visible. this is what TS did for the two photos.

    another one is use light source to burn-in exposure on the subject. like what Charlie Lim do, this type of light painting usually using hosemaster. Where to Buy: Fibre Optics for Light Painting?

    nowadays, this type of light painting method (usinage hosemaster) is no longer popular, as it need very long exposure just to create one shot, and you will not have a same shot again, since you need to paint the light on to the subject manually, beside, such effect can be done in photoshop easy, with more controled results.
    btw, get well soon, redmonsoon

    Well I dont seem to have any interest in the 2nd method of burning in exposure, although I've seen people combining with method 1, by brightening up the environment with a 2nd flashlight.

    Actually seeing the lack of lightpaint postings on CS, I'll think lightpaint is hardly popular here at all.


    >CabbySHE; Can write message too, actually nothing confine light painting except it's got to be done in a dark/dim environment.
    Write messages done loh, must move on already...lol
    I'm already thinking what if I stick the light on a pole and draw eg, an Owl high up on a tree branch... That could be fun as well..haha

    NICE!!!

    So all these can be done in a darken room? Any special set up needed? Like maybe black paper on the walls to prevent light reflection etc??

    Hmm.... i am interested in light painting... omoshiroi desu.
