May 7 Lightpainting with Nicole

This is part of a series of Light Painting shoots.  This shoots model will be Nicole Carver.  We will be shooting cocktail/party dress.


Light painting can be done in several ways, and I do not think any of them are wrong.  We will be limiting the scope in these shoots to a few different techniques.


1 - We will use flashlights from near the model, shooting back towards the camera to create streaks of light.  These flashlights will also affect highlights on the model, and will add some different color (depending on the temperature) of the light.  These will be long exposure shots, and we will use a flash from a studio light at the end to expose and "freeze" the model.


2 - A variation on #1 above.  Same, but we can add a laser to outline/accent parts of the composition.  The laser will be shot from the camera towards the model.


3 - a variation on #1 above.  We will weave the light in and around the model rather than making streaks.


All photographers will need:  Tripod, ability to do long exposures (20-60 seconds for most.  Up to 2 minutes for is possible for some), remote shutter is preferable.  Remote cable shutters run about $35 and GREATLY reduce misfires and redos.


I have included a link to some shots I did in a test shoot, and also some that are in the spirit of what we will shoot.  I will be allowing all photographers to shoot all pictures (since it is just a long exposure).  We will take turns using and directing the flashlights.  Due to the nature of these, I think there will be many fewer shots than you would get in other shoots.  If you want to observe and capture, more than direct - that is fine.  This is a genre that I have rarely shot in studio.  I am offering it because I loved the results, and want to give all in attendance the opportunity to explore, observe and learn.  If you have questions, please let me know.
