Light Painting – Disbuds

I can’t believe my disbuds are still going, I featured them a few times in posts and even called them fading flowers last week…and they are still going strong. I adore just the two of them (the rest are long gone) in this beautiful little still life which I light painted.

The aim of a good still life, especially for light painting is to keep it simple. If you are not familiar with my light painting it is essentially me sitting in the dark and ‘painting’ highlights on my subject with a small torch. I take a long exposure photo, which creates a painterly effect in the image. It can take a little while to master the technique, but it is very calming and very beautiful.

It’s been a while since I have done any, so nice to get back into it again on recently.
