Tc202, how come your set up photo shows a 5d series body with a grip but the results photos EXIF says 1DX II?

Only on the Internet ;)


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

Why... it's just a technological inexactitude.

Thanks! I switched the bodies because I wanted the extra resolution for when thousands of Snow Geese started to fly in. I knew somebody was going to be observant :)

I don't get light painting, but there's no arguing with the results. :)

Looks like a shutter....it is light painting and you can leave sensor exposed and use the external shutter to make the steps.
When ready you close the camera shutter.

Ummm, what's in front of the camera?

I'm using a Hosemaster...an 80's era fiber optic lighting tool. Consists of 2 parts...the base unit that holds a high intensity bulb feeding a fiber optic cable, and the shutter mechanism that hangs in front of the camera. The shutter is controlled by a button on the fiber optic cable end and a second button controls swinging a filter in and out of the shutter area in case you want to introduce diffusion.There's a half dozen different attachments that connect to the cable; paddles/light sword/spot etc to change the size and shape of the light. Essentially when closed, the shutter blocks the light while you move around in front of the camera and you open it when you're ready to 'paint'....and it all takes place in a relatively dark room.

When these were first used in the 80's, no one that saw the images could figure out exactly how this was done. The photographer/inventor started selling the units, made a bunch of money and moved on and the 'look' eventually faded.

I had the opportunity to get this from a friend who was retiring last year. Took me a while to get the time to play with it and this is really the first image I've done.

It's an interesting time to do this; in the film days there was very little post shot correction and by the nature of lighting each element separately for a pre-determined amount of time, and a pre-determined direction...there were lots of variables that could easily screw up a shot. Shooting digitally introduces a lot of flexibility on the back end. The shot I posted is about 90% of the way I wanted it to be and some of the test shots are considerably less than that...but they may have the missing 10% in them that I can incorporate into this one in a way that the 80's guys couldn't dream of. :-D
