Painting with light

May 2013

We decided to try a few lighting techniques on a night shoot last week, techniques that I've not used for a few years, but still proved to give you a stunning image. Painting with light is an advanced technique, but a very effective one if you are trying to capture an almost unlit subject and give it some form and texture. Our location was perfect to demonstrate this as we had to expose for the sky and then create the light on the disused barns.
