And the winner for the April 2015 Light Painting Contest Themed ““Kinetic” light painting is… Jannis Sidiropoulos for above image titled “Ascending and Descending”. This was another very difficult contest to judge! There was some incredible work to choose from, but in the end the judges were able to come up with a winner and it is a great image indeed.
Gear and settings for this light painting were:
Canon 60D with the EF-S17-85mm lens (17mm)
49 Second Exposure
Jannis said this about creating the winning shot:
“This image was created one raining March night in my living room while experimenting with zoom and pan/tilt. I was trying to rotate the camera holding it by hand, but I didn’t like the results so then I started playing around with more simple moves and zoom. The results got more interesting and after some more experimenting I got this one. The light sources are a hula hoop with white xmas lights and some fading LED’s I took out of a toy. 🙂 I guess sometimes the lack of proper equipment can drive you to be more creative in a way..”
This is a very true statement and goes to show you don’t need to have the most expensive complex gear to make fantastic work.
For the winning image Jannis will receive a LPP prize pack filled with treasures from our sponsors below.
