A great photography technique
« on: June 18, 2012, 10:12:09 AM »
I met a photographer recently who asked if he could try a very cool technique on my car.Nick uses a remote shutter control and a light diffuser to take these pics, dressed in black he opens the shutter on the camera then walks around the car bathing the car piece by piece with the light as long as he keeps moving he does not appear in the shot here is the result of Nicks efforts.
A very cool effect

I'm impressed but I'm not totally understanding it though . If the shutter is open for very long you would get an over exposed pic .
Love the effect though  as I've never heard of that technique

I'm thinking that the cars are in the dark when he's doing it. So, the only light that is exposed on the cars is the light he shines on them, so that would prevent overexposure.

After I posted I thought the same thing , they must be in total dark . I'm loving that effect and never have thought of that one .
I wonder if he had his back towards the camera to avoid an issue with his head as i own a black kangaroo jacket to cover most of my head.
and I'd like to know what works best for a light source ?

Sorry for the late reply guys but Grand73Am is spot on the cars are in the dark he used a mag light on the car to set the focus on the camera.
The technique is simple all you have to practice is evenly lighting the car without the light pointing on your self or the camera.
