Light Painted Flower
I did a little experimenting with light painting again last night. A flower closeup, courtesy of my Canon close up lens on my Sigma 70-200mm lens. Shot at ISO 400 at f/11 for 7.1 seconds. During that time I was painting the flower with a little weak penlight, including some light from behind. I thought it turned out fairly interesting, especially the yellow “nucleus”. For anybody wanting to try something similar, I find that you really do need a weak penlight, one of those more modern LED blazing models is too bright, the exposure will be too short to do anything creative, even at a low ISO. Of course, your mileage may differ.
