And the winner for the April 2017 Light Painting Photography Contest themed “Refractograph” is… Tim Gamble for the above titled image “Primordial” Tim shared with us how he created the winning image and he also provided a awesome video tutorial below, Enjoy!
Here is how Tim Created his winning image: “David Hull and Rob Turney inspired, kitchen based, deep space exploration light art. I fashioned a new cardboard diorama with a smaller planet which I was keen to pair with some lenslessness.”
“This being a pinpricked A3 piece of black card with a hole cut in the middle. Then a slightly larger disc of black card stuck over the hole to allow the light to leak through.”
“Next my Led Lenser covered in tinfoil with a tiny pin hole pointing at a glass, about 2 meters away sat on a lightstand. No lens on my camera and positioned a wine glass bottom in front of the camera until happy with the pattern shown in live view. Two seconds of exposure and placed the 50mm manual Samyang on the camera and swapped tripods for the planet part for which I had already focused and set aperture.”
“I took the lens cap off and I lit the card from behind with the Light Painting Brushes colour filters and hoods. One torch with orange for the planet rim and the other two with a purple and blue for the stars.”
Here is a tutorial video I created describing and going through the process.
