There's something in the way she moves....
This is Chayla East aka @thetattooedprincess covered in paint on a recent studio shoot where I used a camera rotation device to rotate Chayla for a more abstract effect:
For this shot I used a single studio light to Chayla's left where I exposed for Chayla on the first part of the exposure and then, without ending the exposure, I rotated the camera 30 degrees with the lens cap on. On reaching the next angle, I removed the lens cap and fired the flash, then repeated the process a total of five times in this case.
Repeating only five rotation means you don't end up overwriting parts of the image already exposed.
More examples from the same shoot where I tried alternative types of rotation:
I can't thank Chayla enough for being patient and keeping perfectly still between exposures; her ability to keep stock still really impressed me!
As ever these images were 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.
