Photo’s like this week’s, let me think time and time again how powerful ‘light painting’ is. It probably is the most expressive way of introducing yourself in to a photograph. A powerful way of blending natural world and photographers creativity to create a master piece. I quite often use the technique to accentuate natures beauty.
The photo this week has been captured in Exmoor National Park in November, 2016. I was hunting for a good location and fell in love with this view as soon as I saw it. I have been thinking on a concept of ‘dispersing light’ but didn’t really find a suitable location to go with it till this moment. The natural formations of the ground leading way to the tree immediately gave me the perspective I was after.
When I returned at night, my main task was to light the scene right. This was difficult than most of my other photos as the light source has to be pointed towards the camera, most of the time. Therefore I had to toggle between my flash gun and led torch to get the details I was after. I ended up taking about 25 individual photos for different parts of the foreground and single shot for the sky. They all had different degrees of exposures.
Tools used (main) – Nikon D810 body, Nikon 14-24mm F2.8 ED lens, flash gun, led torch, external wifi setup with tablet.
Hope you like it. Have a wonderful week guys..!!
