Video of animation of light painting in the landscape.
So, lately I’ve been thinking about a cool little project… I thought it might be fun to create a video animation from the still shots of one of my landscape photographs. Shooting video of me light painting is problematic. Since I’m in complete darkness, it’s very difficult to get a good exposure in the video. It basically looks like an incredibly bright light surrounded by blackness. I’m the first to admit that I’m not a videographer, and I thought that since my still exposures were adjusted through the use of time and motion and distance, that the animation would be much more interesting. I created it in Photoshop, and basically, it’s a compilation of all of the separate captures that I shot and later very simply masked together for the final image.
