I love it!! The first thought to totally pop into my head was, have you seen Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" starring George C. Scott? If you have then you already know what the first thought in my head was!!
The scene where Scrooge wakes up to this glaring from under his bedroom door and he goes in to find the Ghost of Christmas Present.
Thanks, glad you like it, that was exactly the kind of feeling I was going for.
For some reason, I hear loud noises behind that door. Cool shot tho.
DUDE! i had this very image in my head but have not had the time to work it up. how much light did it require?
Jon it didn't take a lot of light at all. I tried all kinds of things including shinning a flashlight through the cracks from behind, trying to light the cracks with a laser pointer, etc, etc.. What I finally did was just lay a flashlight on the floor far enougth away so that the beam covered the entire bottom of the door. the only other light source was the ceiling lights in the adjacent room.
If memory serves it was a 20 second exposure. I did tweak it a little in PS, I used three layers, the original coverted to B&W, B&W with touch of diffuse glow and finally just the higlights with a touch of yellow.
There was something bothering me about this shot, I think I like it alot more like this, what do you guys think?
Cool shot. I like the last version. I think it needs a little tighter crop, but I'm not sure on which side?
thanks for the info. i was planning on two construction lights and may still try it. my vision includes rays beyond the openings.
It should look really good with that much light, If you could get your hands on some dry ice that would look awesome.
I think you are onto something, i have about 6 different versions of this now, lol. I will decide which on I like best in the morning. Here is the flavour of the moment.
makes me afraid to open that door in fear that i might see some little girl's head spinning. HAHAHA...awsome shot!!
Oh yea, I think I like that last one the best.
And I like JM's idea of having some super bright light shining through.
Great shot - the last works the best I think! Especially like the floorboards highlighted, that's a nice touch!
