Gerry and I out light painting again… finally…

Dark Svirls

Dark Svirls

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S @ 15 mm, 955 sec at f/8, ISO 100

So this is a new location I’d found scouring Google Maps (looking for urban tunnels in the Sydney metro area we could use for light painting)

This one is under a fairly major multi lane road and is part of a series of bush walking tracks

So during this nearly 1000 second (16 minute !) long extravaganza we have…

I’m doing my slowly being perfected LED umbrella orb. Gerry’s lighting the tunnel behind me and adding the blue EL wire madness. I’m highlighting a green EL wire river. There was actually quite a lot of water flowing here so the EL is basically just floating along in the rapidly moving water. Gerry’s doing some much more delicate lighting of just the mossy rock covered island in the middle. This actually took quite a bit of finessing and multiple practice takes 🙂

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