094: some steps

April 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Several attempts to nail this, this is as close as I got to how I'd pre-visualised the shot. Wanted the depth of a wide aperture but without the ambient or lightpainting highlights blowing out. 

First step: Set up the lightstand to act as pivot point for the wand. Focus manually. Remove lightstand.

Second step: Start exposure. Quickly add gelled light to the foreground from three positions.

Third step: I'm using a Nikon lens to Sony body adapter so it provides the aperture ring that's otherwise missing from my AF-S 50mm. Stop up towards f/16.

Fourth step: reposition equipment to create disc pattern. End exposure.

Landscape lightpainted at f/1.4, aperture then narrowed down for disc lightpainting.
