    This is only my 2nd time using light painting.

    Canon 30D
    kit lens :mamoru:
    CP

    I used the glass coffee table to shoot the pics on. There were no lights on inside the house at all. I used my Streamlight flashlight for 95% of the lighting, and in some shots I used a Ryobi cordless 12.0v light to help out.
    FWIW the only post-processing involved blacking out the wood structure of the coffee table (underneath) where it showed through with the additional lighting. Just a couple of pictures have a touch of brightness/contrast.......but that is it. This was out of sheer boredom, but I thought they came out well.

    I'd love this even more if it had more of a red burst behind it.

    I like the top down views, but not so much the highlights hitting the tires like they did.

    Nice pics, but nitro FTL. Have you tried any of the new high-torque brushless DC setups? They're a lot cleaner and cooler, and you don't need special gearboxes to get reverse.

    ...and now back to your thread, already in progress.

    Reverse? :mamoru: Electric cars are for fags who play Dungeons and Dragons.
    Shutter set to bulb, manually open shutter, go over entire subject with desired light source. The trick is getting it even across the entire subject, or at least the areas you want lit up. Also lighting it up enough to eliminate shadows.

    Not bad at all. The black's are black and white's are white. Ever try shooting the same shots and making an HDR image?

    I was intending to use it to help add reflection off the glass table the truck is sitting on. Since it was me doing everything, I didn't feel like making it any more complicated than it already was......so I just left it on.
