    don't know what to do...

    I have a former short course student who - after a short course last summer - really got the technique of PWL together...

    Masterful!
    And she has made a short video, showing what she is doing.
    I am duying to show you this, but as it happens she is using the wrong type of camera....

    Can I put the link here?

    To me it doesn't matter what type of camera she is using - the technique is excately the same, and my reason for showing it, is to hopefully inspire others to try it out...

    Put it in the Miscellaneous forum. No one seems to mind a little sideways "D" reference there. I'd love to see it.

    My students do lots of experimenting with drawing with light and a technique one of them did was quite interesting, as follows: - She put her camera on a tripod in her back garden at night and dressed in dark clothing, with the shutter open and using a point source torch (taped over with black plastic, with a small hole in it); she drew a stick man with his dog. In the morning she went back into the garden and planted the tripod with camera into the same holes in the lawn and using double exposure technique, made a photograph of her lawn and house. The result was a drawing with light technique in daylight. I thought that was pretty impressive. She did it on black and white film, but using different coloured lights it could also work quite well with colour film. See the work of Takihiro Sato for similar effects.

    Awesome! Does anybody old enough when Aaron Jones created a craze in the commercial photo world with Hosemaster? Has any APUGer's out there bought a Hosemaster?

    Given the technique is about lighting, which is that is that which happens in front of the camera, who cares what film/digital sensitive medium is being used behind the lens in this thread?

    For painting with light look at Gandolfi's site - http://emilschildt.com/

    well - she knew about the technique - I tought her a tip ot two - maybe helped her realize the almost endless possibillities in this technique.

    All I know is, that now I want a thick piece of glass in my studio....:tongue:

    She happened to be using a digital media, but the video was primarily about lighting. Why would it be wrong to post?
