The winner for the light painting Light Blading contest is Francisco J. Lojo Pasín for the smooth spinning image above!
Fran said this about the winning image!
“I created this image using homemade plexiglass combined with one of my favorite lightpainting techniques, the camera rotation, but in a weird way this time. I put the camera spinning over a turntable!”
I used two flashlights with different power, the one with less power was attached to the homemade rectangle plexiglass and the other to a little acrylic bubble tube, both of them in strobe mode!
The process of taking the pic was easy. I held the two flashlights with a hand and while the camara is spinning I shot with a remote trigger and move the lightblades up moving my wrist to finally point the flashlights to the white roof and cut the exposure.
I tried with many different colors, motions, positions… but finally I decided not use colors and played only with the white balance of the camera. for this shot it was the ‘incandescente’ mode combined with white background ( the roof ) and different power of the cold flashlights, made a great blue tones image, it’s a stunning spiral effect! I’m very proud of the results!
My gear: Nikon D5300 with the 18-140mm kit lens.
The settings were:
3.7 seconds of exposure.
