Tomorrow night please join the hang studio hang out where we go over last weeks assignment to shoot a red wine bottle. Alex Koloskov & Dave Nitsche have been hosting a weekly google hangout. This will be the 6th one. It starts at 10pm EST.


Here is my take on the assignment from last weeks hangout. After 2.5 hours I finally got the shot I was hoping for. I thought I’d give light painting a try as I hadn’t tried this type of photography before. This shot was done in complete darkness and lit only with a maglite and I used my iphone LED to light the background. Each shot was a 30 second exposure. I also had my long exposure noise reduction turned on in my camera which meant for each 30 second exposure I had another 30 seconds of processing in the camera before it transferred to my computer. I took about 20 shots before I got one that I was happy enough with. With an additional 20 minutes in Photoshop to clean it up I think I finally was happy.
