Project 52, week 12: Lightpainting. Just showing off my rad lightsaber moves. Doesn’t everyone have one of those things lying around somewhere?

Actually, I used a fluorescent inspection lamp (looplamp). I taped a sheet of white paper around it to dim the light. The 50Hz AC current causes the nice parallel lines, adding to the sense of motion. I used an off-camera flash to ‘freeze’ my face (I tried standing still for a few seconds with the lamp in front of my face at first, but the light wasn’t bright enough to prevent ghosting).

Setup: Sigma EF-500 DG Super @1/8, 105mm, facing me from left, DIY snoot. Triggered using on-camera speedlite (was using 2nd curtain at first, which you can’t do using a Cactus V5)
