Light Painting in the forest.

Forest-LP (41)-2.jpg

You saw may have seen a post some time ago with the Making of, of this adventure Light Painting near my home. Despite the Corona Virus situation, we went to a nearby bit of forest. The video shows you how most of the pictures were taken. So you can actually see how everything is done.

In those five minutes, you see what I use and how I use it. For this trip I brought an Unleashed remote for my Canon 5D, my Laowa Zero D, the Ball of Light tool by Denis Smith, a Light Blade from Ivan = Light Painting Paradise, and another one from my friend from Shanghai Jacky Zhou = Lighter Light Painting, as well as an armada of flashlights from Sven Gerard as well as my LED Lenser selection.

Most parts of the footage were recorded by Natalia Cerqueira. Some of it was by me, as well as 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.

Super cool. The video is great. Looks like a sweet bag of gear... I'm definitely needing to get some more 'stuff' for lightpainting from the looks of it ;) First would be a good rotation setup.
