Point of no return - Light painting.

Proper cool night out with Rob H and a visit to a new tunnel, which is prime light painting real estate. Its dark in the day. We made friends with a newt and we both got shots we were really happy with.

What more could you ask for.
Refractograph set up after framing Rob and the tunnel. Positioned and sized to give some sense of reality.

Fired the shutter and let the refraction element burn in for 10 seconds. Lens swap to the Pentax 28mm then walked away from camera shining a torch gelled the same colour as the refracograph and back again. Then turning towards Rob I used the Palateth method of lighting the scene, as if the light form was illuminating Rob and creating a believable shadow.

All in all a superb mid-week faff in top company. Happy days.
Minimal tweaks rto the raw file in Lightroom.

Inspired by the epic work of Alan Jaras, David Hull, Ectro and the ever awesome Palateth. Cheers chaps.

If you'd like to see more light painting on Steemit then give @lightpaintershub "Lightpainters United" a follow and you'll be introduced into the world of light painting.

Happy days.
