Camera Rotation Light Painting in the historic Library

2020_02_29_Goerlitz-Library (76)-LR-2.jpg

In my initial post from 6 month ago I introduced you to this wonderful library in Görlitz.

Today I share another photograph taken during the same night. For this, I used the camera rotation tool halfway during the single exposure light. After starting the exposure, I ran around starting from the right-hand side with white and orange torches. Returning to the camera position I rotated the camera, changed the color of the flashlight, and did the same thing in blue and white.

What settings?

Görlitz Library

As the easternmost city of Germany, Görlitz is the place to be if you’re after a generous dose of culture. Together with friends from Saxony, I spent a night in the museum/library. Thanx to the great Organization of Danilo Strauss and company of good friend Felix Leda from Ferpixelt, Feli, and Natalia I got to spent a wonderful time light painting in Görlitz.

Görlitz has a rich architectural heritage on display. (there is to explore lots of historic remains of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical, Art Nouveau times).
The Barockhaus is the most significant Baroque building in the region. It hosts the artistically formed "Oberlausitzische Bibliothek der Wissenschaften" Engl: Upper Lusatian Library of Sciences and its collection mostly dedicated to science.

Founded by Karl Gottlob Anton in celebration of the enlightenment, it contains around 140.000 volumes, manuscripts, and handwritten books as old as from the 11th, documenting the history and culture, art, nature, economy, and society of the region.

Whether you are a book worm or not, this architectural Gem inspired my curious sense of engineering in wonder. We had access to the wooden vaulted shelves filled with handwritten, copper printer medieval science books.

Many thanks to the Die Freunden der Görlitzer Samlungen e.V., who trusted on us to photograph their cultural heritage, run through their corridors of history in the dark. Special thanks for staying up so late on such a cold evening.

My shout out to Danilo Strauss, for holding and sharing access to Görlitz precious gems as well as to Feli our model, and Felix Leda for a great collaboration here.
Thank you Natalia for filming and helping with the edit.

I hope it was informative and maybe also inspirational. If you have more questions please do not hesitate. I am happy to share my knowledge.

@gunnarheilmann, After watching this picture one sentence came into my mind and that is, Opposite reflection of what is above and what is below.

And sounds like you've put both Physical and Technical efforts to come up with this Gem.

In my opinion this Museum/Library looks like perfectly fitting for the Magical Movies.

Architectural Heritage and Architectural Belongings adds so much value to particular place and also boosts the Rate Of Tourism.

Keep up with your wonderful work and stay blessed.

omg that's a great shot! so neat! and a creatively smart technique :D I really gotta start doing some light painting again, with so many lightpaiting posts here on Hive I'm getting really inspired :)

Also, what a place! when I think of lightpaiting I usually just think of outdoor places, but now you just reminded me it's also possible on places like this :) and this place was a good option, it's really beatuiful.

Nice post! :D

Thank you so much for taking the time here. The library has also a few historic paintings that I would have expected in a high ranking museum not in a small town on the border to Poland.

Fantastically done @gunnarheilmann 🤗
The library is magnificent with light painted, they give it a second dimension.😊

Super glad you like and took the time to have a closer look. ;)
Thank you so much for your continued support over soooo long.

You're welcome @gunnarheilmann
I enjoy your light painting! 😊
