Light Painting Capture: Cylon Raider

in PowerHouseCreatives2 years ago

More poor-man's lightpainting in a light-tent tonight. As promised, tonight's image is that of the Cylon Raider.

The Cylon Raider took on a change from the original 1978 Battlestar Galactica and the new 2003 version. In the original version the raider was a fighter ship and was piloted by Cylon warriors. In the new, 2003 version, the Cylon Raider was a living creature with self-awareness and the ability of self-propulsion, so did not require a pilot. In fact, there was no room for a pilot; it's internal workings were techno-organic.


This particular toy is modeled after the 2003 Raider but, interestingly, has room for a Cylon pilot. I have the pilot, so I put it in there.


These particular images turned out a little darker than I was originally planning, but as I was working on editing them I felt this was the right look: the Cylons are the bad guys, and what evokes bad monster more than emerging and then retreating into the dark, where it can't be seen?

Hmmm, no running lights on these Cylon Raiders.
A clear violation of FTC regulations, don't let them catch you flying these around here.

These are so cool, Victor! I am glad you are getting some great shots and sharing them with us.

I never did get to paint with light. I ended up putting away Christmas decorations and such.

Le sigh.

Of course, tonight is a no go. I didn't even get time to post yet. Spend the day at Arlington as I will be unwreathing on Saturday. I am hoping for a great day!
