Automotive Light Painting: Exige and Elise.

clock March 7, 2013 20:00 by author Martyn

Popped out with the Snap-On LED torch the other night… Sat the Canon on a tripod, hooked up the wireless remote, and commenced shooting the rear of my Exige. The night after, I stole the keys to the Dad-in-Laws Elise and did a 'secret shoot' of a 3/4 view for a bit of a surprise for him.

Back home - I say back home… One of the shots was shot on the driveway, just outside the back door! - a bit of deft photoshop editing later, and I ended up with 2 images I was really happy with. What do you think?


Here are a couple of image composites of the 2 shoots - Each shot is made up from approximately 20 individual photos, selectively masked and balanced to make up one single image.

Each image is shot over 10 seconds, and the 'light trails' you can see around the car, are the paths that the torch took over the curves of the vehicle, to highlight individual contours and features...



Here also, is a bonus video showing the number of layers and individual images used to create the Lotus Elise image:




Domes... The journey starts here.

Inspired by Andrew Whyte, of longexposures.co.uk who's been producing some serriously amazing long exposure and light painting work for a good while now - I believe his debut release of "domes" was in January this year, and since then, it's remained a closely guarded secret of a select couple of individuals...

I've solved the puzzle.

 Watch this space: More to come...
