I hope you are well and spending your time on creative work.

Today I show you a work I did with analogue stencils. Very interesting and a lot of possibilities.

Samyang 14 mm lens for the rotation in the middle.
Sigma 28-70 mm lens for the stencil and the zoom effect

Stencil, Black fibre optic, white/milky Tube, programmable LED unit, 3 tripods, CRT (Camera Rotation Tool)


The image was taken in several steps, during a longexposure. Nothing is added or removed in post processing. No Photoshop!

I wish you all a beautiful christmas week, be creative and stay healthy. 😎


What is Light Painting?

Light painting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or to shine a point of light directly at the camera, or by moving the camera itself during exposure. Nothing is added or removed in post processing.
