Rotating the Snake! Camera rotation and lightpainting photography
This is a shot made with @fadetoblack patiently posing while I rotate the camera on it's lens axis:
For this image I shot the central figure and replaced the lens cap without ending the exposure. I then panned the camera over about 45 degrees to one side and rotated the camera until it was tilted 45 degrees off level. Tim very kindly changed the colour gel on the strobe and assumed his mark. I then fired the flash and replaced the lens cap again without ending the exposure. I then repeated the process every 90 degrees until I had 4 x Tim silhouettes.
Thanks as always goes to @fadetoblack as these shots would be virtually impossible without collaboration!
Here are more examples using the same panning and rotate technique:
These images are, as always, created in one photographic exposure and are not Photoshop creations.
About me: I usually specialise in shooting lightpainting images but occasionally dabble in urbex and artistic model photography. I'm always on the lookout for someone to collaborate with; please don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like to create art.
