114 — 360 degree light painting — Interview with Patrick Rochon

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #114 fea­tures an inter­view with light painter Patrick Rochon who dis­cusses his new exper­i­men­tal 360 degree light paint­ing tech­nique. In a nut­shell, Patrick light paints a model who stands in the mid­dle of a ring as 24 DSLR cam­eras around the ring expose the scene at the same time. The frames are then strung together with soft­ware to give the illu­sion of cir­cu­lar move­ment. Patrick and I talk about his new work, his older work, and we talk about Patrick’s light paint­ing process as well.

While I was at Patrick’s place record­ing this inter­view, I noticed a gallery of new light painted (non 360) pho­tographs on his wall that were gor­geous. This image below was one that I really liked — Thx for send­ing it Patrick!
