Five go mad in Padley - Camera rotation photography and lightpainting

One of the great things about lightpainting is the collaborations I've been able to do and the great results that come from them.

With this shot I lined up my friend, @steem.tom.hill and he practiced spinning his light sabre on strobe mode. Once happy I started the exposure, Tom spun his light sabre and then I replaced the lens cap without ending the exposure. I then panned the camera across to the right and rotated the camera to a 45 degree angle. I then removed the lens cap and Tom repeated his spin. I then replaced the lens cap after each spin and repeated at each 45 degree angle. Job done.

This image was created in one photographic exposure and is not a Photoshop creation. The camera used was a Sony A7 full frame camera with a Sony Zeiss 16-35mm lens and a camera rotation tool. The camera settings were f6.3 ISO400 and 70 seconds.

About me: I specialise in shooting lightpainting images all in one photographic exposure which involves different elements with different lenses and tripods.
