My daughter came back from her school fireworks night with two interesting multicoloured LED lighting devices. That gave me a thought of doing light painting with these to see what they look like. As my daughter is starting to get an interest in photography, what better way to get her involved than for her to also help with the light painting.
Equipment: Sony A7R, FE 24-70/4 OSS lens set at 24mm F8 ISO 100 6″, mounted on Giottos tripod and triggered with IR remote
Location: completely dark bedroom
These are the light sources used. The foam tube light has three modes of flashing the light, which lends itself to more interesting patterns:
We tried a few different methods, with my daughter lighting the centre and my light moving around this.
Anyway, here are the results. My daughter enjoyed helping with this and seeing the end results. So well worth the effort.
If you notice some dark lines running straight down in some parts of the image, these are the lines from my wardrobe between the doors which show up because the doors are white in colour.
