Last week while sitting alone on my sofa, my sight beamed on my 2 year daughter’s toysFrom nowhere an idea popped in my otherwise junk-filled head. I thought it would be amusing to create a photo story revolving around her toys as principal characters and elements.
On a perfectly normal evening, I came across the moon rising over a tower through my balcony. I thought of doing something funny.
Normally I love composing my photos whilst shooting in the dark with my tripod, my flashlights and my camera on long exposure. However there have been some stupid things I have done lately with the camera. Popularly it’s known as Camera painting. I just call it mad effects.
Shooting in dark excites me to no end. Possibilities of composing a photo are simply limitless when the shutter remains open for as long as you want.In this post I would like to write on something I call ‘Single Exposure, Multiple Composition’.
I stole some time to try something with light painting. The result- Photograph that I like to call ‘Love Painting’. The sharp darkness of the surrounding landscape provided the best setting for this photo.
Absence of light in a picture presents infinite possibilities for photographers. I have come to admire the stunning and surreal effects of photographing with long exposures in practically no-light or very low light conditions with nothing but a flashlight. This is ‘Light Painting’.
