Néon Flexible - Spécialiste en bande souple et en néon flexible en bruto Light Painting: explanation, techniques, examples. DEFINITION A 'light painting' digital photograph is created by the movement of a light or lights, using a slow camera shutter speed, to create a image. Because this type of photography requires a long exposure (typically from one second to ten seconds), it is usually done at night or in an unlighted room. While light painting effects can be simulated with Adobe PhotoShop or other image editing program, light painting is an in-camera photography effect and not achieved through computer manipulation of the image. The effects possible with this purely photographic technique are unlimited and a new area for experimentation now that they are much easier to work with in digital photography.DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY AND LIGHT PAINTING With the immediate feedback of the digital photography LCD screen, light painting photography has come of age. The photographer can quickly adjust exposure, color balance and focus along with adjusting the movement of lights to make a better composition.

Even better? Source: Instagram user thirdeyefoto The following suggestions are best used when light painting with multiple people: one (or several) to control the light sources and another to work the camera. Set up a tripod — Light painting calls for long exposure times, which can cause slight unwanted shakiness (and not of the light paint streak variety) in the camera when held by hand. Should you want to also include a subject in the image, use a flash to capture more than just the paint streaks. POPSUGAR, the #1 independent media and technology company for women.

Photography techniques: Star trail photography Introduction Since the Earth rotates, the stars are not at fixed places in the sky but appear to move, more or less towards the west. To photograph the tracks the stars make across the sky, all you need is a camera that remains fixed to ground and have it expose for an appreciable amount of time. Such photos can be quite artistic. The stars appear to rotate around both the north and south poles in the sky, of which you generally only see one. Star trail photos are always eye-catching, if done correctly. What you need All you need to photograph star trails is a camera with lens that can do time exposures (on 'B' or Bulb mode), a cable release or lockable shutter release, and a tripod. Any star trail photo needs an exposure time of several minutes up to several hours. The choice of lens depends mostly on the composition you choose. The tripod needs to be sturdy enough to not move by wind and such, otherwise the star trails will not be perfect. Exposure times, aperture and film Variations
