Halloween Self Portrait
By Dan on November 19, 2014 10:14 AM
Theresa and I assumed Dia de los Muertos style for Halloween this year. After walking around Boulder for a bit we decided we needed to immortalize the look in the studio. Theresa did her own makeup, Cassandra did mine. We did the photo ourselves with nobody else helping.
This shot was done in four separate lighting moments within a single exposure. Theresa and I were not exposed within the image together simultaneously, each of us were lit independently by the other.
Amy Kresse, Secret Music

I got to shoot with fellow Canadian Amy Kresse a little while ago. She has a wonderful story and has released a new album to accompany it. She wanted to do a light painting shot for the cover about releasing her music, her magic, into the world. This shot is what we came up with. Her manager put the text on there but otherwise this image is as-shot.
You can check out her site and music at http://amykressmusic.com/
Denver Broncos Logo Light Painting Mosaic

Last night I took my first shot at making a light painting mosaic. This is a 9x6 grid with 20 black tiles and 34 individually light painted tiles that weren't manipulated in any way other than being cropped and assembled. I'm a huge hockey fan too and the Avs logo may be next!
Each individual tile was made with a long exposure shot while waving lights through the air to 'draw' that image. After each tile was shot they were assembled on a computer but that's the only part of this that a computer touched!

Light Painting with Theresa Again

We make amazing pictures together! This shot is a total team effort. Theresa, mostly in black wearing a black sheet over her head/face, guided the rainbow effect across the frame and back while I lit it with the Liteblade. Then we put her in the middle and added her to the picture. All in a single exposure.
