The Upside Down - How-To Light Painting Breakdown

Opted for an early meet up with Chris T at Padley Gorge again a while back and what a treat was in store for us. On my drive there the higher I climbed the denser the fog became and before long the air was thick with the good stuff.

Chris was already there framing up a peach of a double and after he bagged that we headed to the magical gnarly woodland.

Simplicity was the key here using nothing but a gelled torch to backlight me and a 180 degree rotation of the camera. Swapping gels from orangey red to blue between rotations. Cheers to Chris for being the lens cap gimp and camera rotator.

Shortly after this one the wind picked up and the fog was no more. I would take these conditions over any other where light painting is concerned.

A cracking night and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

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.
