Camera Rotation with a Light Painting Orb

in #photofeed2 months ago (edited)

Yes we do like Orbs²

As @fastchrisuk was sharing some impressive orbs in his recent post.. I fully agree and here is one of mine. In the past, I have done not too many so mine are maybe not as sophisticated.

Nearby the place I live, is a forest with a beautiful alleyway of trees. During the Corona time social distancing period I went to this forest for some Light Painting. One picture that was taken, I posted in the original post last month. After the first shot, I only took one more shot here which is this one.

My friend helped me with the background lighting, while I was spinning the orbs. So first the green + orb then the orange + orb. All in a single exposure Light Painting with no Photoshop.

The orb tool I used here for the second time is from Denis Smith from Australia. If you are interested find The Ball of Light Tool.

How & What?

In this video you can see me spin the device for a few seconds. Then you get an idea of how this is done. On top you see a few other tools and images that I took that other night.

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.

Cool, trying to create two symmetrical orbs on a rotation shot would drive my OCD insane lol
