I saw an article in a photog magazine and thought i'd give it a try too.
Not sure bout the reflections in the glass but cool concept ya learned. I like It.
not to bad i have the same magazine ;D i do believe you recreated it very well
not bad. the reflection are a little bit annoying. and that blue dot in the center of ur last pic.
Cool, I've never done this but I assume its done in complete darkness, about f/5.6 and bulb exposure with a led light?
Very cool! They turned out pretty good!
Thanks for the comments. It was fun to see how each shot turned out.
i'm guessing a lot of the reflections are from "painting" the glass with the light.
@sovietdoc... i put it on f22 as per the mag's recommendation. exposed it for about 15sec each.
can you post a link to the article on how they did this? My guess is timed exposure, still light, wave a light behind the glass, sticking it over the glass so you're not lit up?
it's actually pretty simple. dark base for the light and a dark background. just manual focus and set up the shot before you turn out the lights. I used a 5 bulb led flashlight and just made sweeps and turns in front and behind the glass. all the light reflecting off the base is just from the flashlight.
i got the article from this magazine but i couldn't find it online. I'm sure i'd be breaking copyright law somewhere by scanning it and posting to the forums.
Yeah, looks like it turned out pretty well... I think you may be able to avoid such highlights in the glass by moving your light source past the glass at a faster pace.
This makes me think of the sprint commercials! Very nice!
I tried this the other day with an LED flash light. F/5.6 15 second exposure. It seemed like i was getting way too much light in the exposure. I tried to stop down but it still seemed too bright. Any ideas? Flash light too bright?
