Tree Stump - Forest Light Painting

in #photofeed12 days ago

The Tree Stump revive with the Light.


Some time ago I found this tree stump in a forest nearby, that just could not take some humans decision on being killed. It decided to stay alive and started regrowing. It looks wonderful and creates the sense of hope that nature will take over and come back after humans.


I decided I want to play with the light around it.

For that image, I lit up the tree stump from the front and then from the side. At the same time, there was an orange light placed to light up the forest. For me to run around and light this scene took 48 seconds. The camera settings were the following.

What you see is once again a single exposure Light Painting with no Photoshop. Minimal adjustments like crop and color balance, noise, and sharpness have been performed. Less than a 1min Lightroom.

Just a little bit different in the light a second try:

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.
