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!

82 — Light-painting portraits — Interview with Patrick Rochon

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #82 dis­cusses paint­ing with light AKA light paint­ing with mas­ter light painterPatrick Rochon. In a nut­shell, light paint­ing is (usu­ally) the art of using portable lights like flash­lights to ‘paint’ a sub­ject in a dark envi­ron­ment while the shut­ter stays open on a tri­pod dur­ing a long expo­sure. In this pod­cast Patrick describes and shares some of the tips and tricks he uses to cre­ate his amaz­ing light painted por­traits. The major­ity of Patrick’s body of work, like the image below is non-digital, was shot on film, and has not been Photoshopped.

Painting with light

LIGHT PAINTING
Light paint­ing has actu­ally noth­ing to do with ‘paint­ing’ per say, but rather is an artis­tic form of pho­tog­ra­phy. To go about it, choose a sub­ject to shoot, turn off the lights, and while hold­ing your light source, move it around. Play­ing around with‚your shut­ter speed will affect the out­come of the shot; a good shut­ter speed for this type of artis­tic imagery is 20–30 seconds.

This is a fun way to exper­i­ment with your cam­era and light­ing, and can pro­duce some fab­u­lous results. Best thing? You don’t need to have much‚patience for it! 20–30 min­utes is all you need and you’ll get a nice hand­ful of shots.‚Nice idea when doing this type of exer­cise is to wear black cloth­ing… oth­er­wise you may become the focal point of your shoot!
