Light Painting Forresters Rocks

14 09 2008

This is a shot that I have been planning for about 6 weeks. I have been doing a lot of research and experimentation on light painting sources…. bought some, made some…. All the while I had a very clear first image in my mind… the gorgeous rocks at Forresters by moonlight.


I had thought about the final image for weeks… literally. I had planned the shot in a fair bit of detail and could have sketched the finished image weeks before I photographed it.

While there was still a fair bit of experimentation with light sources and exposures on the night, there was no doubt about the end result. I was pretty happy with the way that it turned out.

Incidentally, for those that want to understand what this scene looks like without the light painting and post processing… Here’s one of my RAW captures straight out of the camera… this should give you an appreciation for the power of light painting when it comes to night photography.

Any chance you have a post planned about your techniques? I’ve tried some night light painting but haven’t found something I’m happy with yet.

Oh, and you might want to consider the word verification for comments function in blogger 🙂
