How can I create a literal “light painting”? Wait, I know, I’ll use a paint brush and paint it with light! So after I came up with that brilliant groundbreaking idea ;), it was time to make it happen. I really was about to give up after struggling to get the colored paper to look like paint. When people think that photographers are just out always laughing and having a great time taking pictures, no. Just no. When the image isn’t coming together like this one, I get frustrated and sometimes I move on, but with the pressure of the new Vlog looming, I buckled down and kept working on the image. It wasn’t long after my temper tantrum that I placed the colored paper on either side of the brush and was blown away by the result. It’s working! Looking back, I could have placed some black paint on the brush to really make the image believable, but either way, I just dig the soft blending of the colored paper in this image.
Lesson of the day… Grind through the tough times, the results will be worth it in the end.
Thanks for watching!
