Archive for the ‘Painting With Light’ Category

Finally painting with light!!! LOL. Yes, had my camera set up on a tripod, with no light, the only light was from the torchlight.

I did a couple of shots to understand the correct setting and apparently a larger aperture (F11 & above) is the key to capturing this the way i intended. Photo taken at smaller aperture (f3.5~f8) allow too much light into the camera and tend to let the camera capture more of the surrounding. Since I prefer a darker surrounding, adjusting the aperture to minimum is the answer.


If you look carefully, you can see my face in the middle. The word I was trying to write is “I Lov U’

And just to let you see what & how creative this set of technique can be, check out the video below, you will love it!



Hoped you are enjoying your weekend… 🙂 Just a quick note about an article I read online, something that you and I can learn about photography….

Beginners often photograph their subjects literally. There’s nothing wrong with that. Many times, though, an ordinary subject can be made extraordinary. That is rarely due to the subject and almost always a reflection of the photographer. Extraordinary photographers do not see their subjects only literally

begin to look at your compositions as visual elements, rather than merely literal subjects, you will go a long way towards taking photographs to be proud of. Remembering that photographic images are made of tone, shapes, and lines and their relationships will make it easier for you to find a good composition, no matter what the subject. And you’ll know that even old subjects can be shot anew, no matter who tells you differently.
