And the winner for the Fiber Optic Light Painting Contest is Kim Von Coels for the awesome image above!
Kim said” I created this image with the help of my friend Domenic and the lovely Maddy in an experimental session in my spare room.
Ever since seeing Tim Gambles images where he used a transluscent chair matt as a diffuser I have been searching for something interesting I could use to shoot through, eventually finding a roll of textured anti slip plastic in the attic that I had bought years ago to make home made tubes with. I taped the plastic to a rigid frame and asked my model to stand behind it, very close with only her hands lightly touching the plastic. I then breifly lit her face with a torch from above before using a red laser pen to colour her from the sides and then a home made black fibre optic tool fashioned from a kids lamp and a blue gel to surround her with the smokey effect, brushing around her body and onto the plastic with the ends.”
The settings for the winning image were: f8, ISO 200, and a 49 Second Exposure
The Gear Used: Nikon D610, basic tripod and a Nikon nikkor 24-85mm zoom lens 1:2.
