I have something … a little different for you this week. I’m becoming more and more interested in the technique of light painting (using flashlights and other light-emitting devices to make effects in a photo), and I was sitting around, thinking about what I could with the devices I have on hand without going outside. Don’t ask why, I’m in a bit of a hermit mode right now.
Anyway, I purchased a Gundam model kit a few days ago and put it together (if you don’t know what Gundams are, google it, coolest things ever!). In a fit of geek-outedness, I decided to use light painting to make my model appear as if it is firing its weapons, just like in the show. It’s definitely a little out there, but it’s totally cool too!!! Anyway, this is what I ended up with, including adding some stars from my previous star photos in there.
So there you have it, something different using just what was lying around my apartment. If anyone has questions as to how any of this was done, please feel free to ask. I’m still learning about light photography, and the goal is to apply these sorts of techniques to dancers and other artists as they perform in the real world.
Let me know what you think, and thanks for checking out my Gundam geek-out:)
See you next time.
