Trip to my inner self

August 3, 2016

Toy Photography.

A trip to my inner self , These are images that I see when I dream. Then I have to remove them from within.
Nothing extraordinary but the extraordinary power that represent bringing your dreams to life. And nothing complicated, just a little imagination, patience and a small light source.

Light painting is the technique that I used for the shot; A long exposure shot (1 minute) and a small LED lantern to paint the scene with light.

You don't need tons of gear to tell stories. In fact, you just need a camera, a tripod and a lantern and yes, some imagination.

50mm · f/16.0 · 57s · ISO 100

So surreal and dreamy. Absolutely great!
But did you compose several exposures or is it in fact one shot with perfectly timed light painting? I'm really speechless!

Hi Matthias... Thank you... For the light painting I did a 1 minute long exposure shot... so painted all in one shot! Not combining them.
