Time Portal - Light Painting in the Hangar


Here is another shot from the Hangar I was sharing with you almost a week ago. Here I feature a Light Orb made by hand and a circular Light Blade.


As mentioned before I went to this cool place with Sven Gerard an epic LightPainter from Lichtkunstfoto.de and good friend. The Hangar is just outside of Berlin near another impressive Hangar.

This Hangar is just a few hundred meters away on the same airfield. I was used for a project called Cargo Lifter but now it's called Tropical Island. You can actually go swimming there.
While shooting the foto we would hear the Lifeguards calling people to behave.
Just to give you a side note on the size of that hangar have a look at the Wikipedia entry or this image


For reference, look at the people in the bottom left corner.

Anyhow that's not where we took the photos. That small MIG 29 hangar was much more interesting to us ;-)
So here you see again the baseline lighting attempt. Walking up and down and sideways to do the Lighting shot took only 22 seconds.

The featured image took 191 seconds of exposure at ISO50. To get the entire hangar I used the LAOWA Zero D 12mm F2.8 Lens. Amazing lens for architecture and landscape. Here it was working for us nicely. But before it worked I needed to practice the individual steps.

After the white lighting test, I performed the same thing with colors. It was a bit more complicated because I handled multiple flashlights after another and took 101 seconds as you see it here.
To create the sphere itself took me 55 seconds in this try.

For that, I used a circular Light Blade from Light Painting Paradise. Super simple to attach a flashlight and swing your arm around ;-)

But make no mistake what you see as the main image is not a composite of all these images. It is me taking the experience and knowledge about each individual step and perform it all together in one go.
Here all that comes together in the main featured shot.
I hope it was informative and maybe also inspirational. If you have more questions please do not hesitate. I am happy to share my knowledge.
