Mystic Forest Walk - Light Painting

in #photofeed2 months ago (edited)

Of course I put the light into the forest.

Nobody will set the light right there.

To get these shots I walked through the forest with a green and a white torch. Important was here to highlight the bark of the trees. To do that the angle of the light has to be as low angle as possible. In this case it meant from far-right and left I lit the first row of trees. After that, I shine the green into the deep forest.

What happened here?

The main single exposure light painting was created with no use of Photoshop. All in-camera with only minor adjustments.

Of course that night I engineered not just take one shot. I did experiment with different light settings and exposure times.
