Lili Plant Part II. - Livingroom Light Painting during Quaranteen


In preparation for my last post about Texture and Shadows I created some example shots that illustrate the procedure. Since I had this Lili sitting on my deck I grabbed it and light painted with it. Here you see the second shot from that night.

As a light tool, I used again a small scanner build from a car LED work lamp. You can see it in the video of my Instagram post from yesterday. or in the following image in the middle.


If you are interested in seeing the actual procedure, go to my Instagram post from yesterday. There you'll find a short video of how the photo was created.

What happened here?

Same as in the other original post. This single exposure light painting was created with no use of Photoshop. All in-camera with only minor adjustments in Lightroom.

I hope it was informative and maybe also inspirational. Maybe you try this at home ;-) If you have more questions please do not hesitate. I am happy to share my knowledge.

Great picture and strangely it's something I've been interested in doing. I have a giant Lily with 8 heads, all have opened and look beautiful. Have been pondering how to light them up and how to present the background. Thanks for the inspiration and maybe I'll get my version taken over the weekend.
