Bohemian Rhapsody


Nikon D70 @ 27mm, 30 sec, f/10, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

So today I just stayed in to study, so there weren't any decent photo ops. But I did manage to get my brother to sit still for about 10 minutes while I tried another painting with light technique. Same as last time - a dark room, a torch, and a 30 second exposure. I know this could probably be done better with an external flash, but hey, I haven't got one. Until then, the torch will have to do...

Hey dude, I find this shot rather interesting, I photograph a lot at night using off camera flash with colour filters over the flash, I usually end up with long exposure times and some crazy images. The results are always different but I sometimes get results like the one you got with this image, that being the same subject more than once in the same frame. I wondered if you had ever tried using off camera flash and colour filters at night?

Hey Peter, sounds interesting the kind of shots you're taking about... any chance of posting a link to them? Unfortunately I don't have an external flash at the moment (or coloured filters for that matter), but if I did, I'd definitely try experiment like you've suggested. I've seen quite a few cool shots using the flash multiple times in one exposure - i suppose you'd get the same results as I got on this one, but they'd come out a lot sharper.

Cheers for the suggestion, just need some money to get that flash now :)

Hey John, I can not post a link to them, I am working on my web site and hope get that up and going soon, but if you want to post your e-mail address I can e-mail a few to you.

Usually the images are quite sharp, it depends though, I've had some very long exposure times in which a tripod was necessary, and there have been times when I have intentionally created movement in the shot to see what the results would be.

Take it easy, later

Very cool long exposure. Like others have said I have a hard time getting anything worthwhile out of long exp shots...lots of blur. How did you manage to get the clear shots in a circle? You moving or your brother? Well done by torch lighting...cheers, -T

Hey ZoomVienna. I had the camera set up on a tripod and just go my brother to move around the frame. He'd get in to a position and I'd shine the torch on him. Then I would make sure the torch was out the frame, tell him to move, and then paint him with light again. Good fun, but you could probably get better results using a flash.

Cheers

John you might find this site interesting - http://www.lostamerica.com/lostframe.html

This guy takes some really cool night shots with coloured gels over flashguns and torches.
