Light Painting Shooting inside a Fuel Tank

in #photofeed21 days ago

The silhouettes of my neighbors.

When we went to an old military facility there were two huge tanks that we went, here you see the first 2 shots of the second tank yet bigger of the night I share here today. We were particularly interested in looking 'into' two of the fuel tanks. The tanks are empty for 30 years and aren't smelling much like gas anymore. So that was good news.

The simple light paintings sometimes are the coolest. These are relatively simple yet effective. My neighbors were super happy with the superhero shots they got.


The principle stays the same as always. I try to do all the effects in-camera and not play too much with Photoshop. I started behind my neighbors with the kick light then I ran around the walls to light up the tank. It did take me about five test runs to understand how much light is required to apply to look cool.

I am super happy to explain it in more detail if needed.
