Sculptures in Alien Hands…

by on Nov.02, 2012, under Life, Photography

A couple more light painting sequences from our session at Sculpture By The Sea

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

Firstly a piece incorporating the very interesting windmills of “Cave Urban”. In this frame Suren is the very accommodating (and with very tired arms and legs from having to stand near motionless for 20 minutes :)) silhouette with fire energy in his hands, I’m doing the green and blue EL wire on the ground and Gerry was going to do the torchlight on the bamboo poles… but.. well, time (and the exposure – all six miniutes) ran out before we had the chance – luckily ambient from the reflected light pollution off the clouds, the full moon and other people lighting was easily enough for our purposes

Gatekeeper Z

NIKON D600 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 16 mm, 360.00 sec at f/11, ISO 100

A Sculpture by Zhang Yangen titled “Seas Nest” – however my version I’ve called

Lunar Egg

NIKON D600 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 35 mm, 160.00 sec at f/9, ISO 100

Incorporating the moon (yes I know it looks like the sun, but trust me – it’s the almost full moon – and it’s very very bright) into the shot was tricky since it would have nuked the exposure. I had Cameron stand at the back of the egg in front of the opening where the moon is, shielding the moon from camera view for most of the exposure, only moving near the very end to expose the moon. I did the greeny/blue EL wire everywhere on the ground… and went a bit overboard 🙂 and Suren did the LED torch light from left and right sides.

Finally another incorporating the excellent “Mirador” dome by Rachel Couper & Ivana Kuzmanovska

Fire Bug

NIKON D600 + 16.0-35.0 mm f/4.0 @ 16 mm, 107 sec at f/9, ISO 100
