Re: Light Painting It stands for Straight Out Of the Camera Basically no photoshop etc to enhance it.
The light is created by myself moving a light wand in a set pattern. My camera is on a tripod for the duration of the exposure, sometimes well over 5 minutes long. You can see my feet if you look closely on some pics.
Whoops! A little bit blown out with the highlights! I could have used Photoshop to change the levels, but I want to show this expsoure in its raw state as it was captured. The only 'Photoshopping' was to resize from the large RAW pic and a watermark.
If I remember rightly I lost track of where I had already been and ended up going around again! It's given me a very precise orb though! Starting to love these now :)
