Virus 6.0 - kinetic lightpainting in my kitchensteemCreated with Sketch.

in #appreciatorlast year (edited)

Continuing my current obsession with circuit boards and kinetic lightpainting photography where the actual camera moves rather than the subject. This is a lens and tripod swap in the dark with one element of camera movement and another element of zoom pulling.


For this shot, first I shot the circuit board with an inward zoom pull with a backlight:


Then, without ending the exposure, I swapped lenses in complete darkness and switched tripods pointed at an iPad with the negative skull image. I removed the lens cap and exposed for one second then panned across to the right slowly and back over to the left slightly quicker for a less exposed trail of light:


I've been calling these kinds of shots, "SOOK" as in straight outta the kitchen because they literally were created in my kitchen. I still feel compelled to say that this shot was created in one photographic exposure and is not a Photoshop creation.

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.

If you'd like to see more light painting on Steemit then give @lightpaintershub a follow and you'll be introduced into the wonderful world of light painting.


Your explaination can be a bit confusing for newbies because you show two different pictures (people could think about stacking) but it's cool the see the steps you take. I try to do the same now, I mean sharing the pictures I took before to reach something I'm satisfied with.

That shot is so sharp, I definitely love the SOOK concept! (but mine is really tiny^^).

Thanks mate, I'm thinking of changing my description to "SOODR" as in straight outta the dining room lol I'm also thinking lately I may not spend quite so much time explaining how it's done since I didn't really explain much until Steemit came along.
