May Challenge 2008 #4

May Challenge 2008 #4, originally uploaded by BenSpark.

I took a small LED flashlight and put it over the car in one hand and shot the image with the other. I would do this again with a macro lens (mine was lent out to my cousin) and then put the camera on a tripod on a timer or remotely so it could be sharper.

  1. Hi Lou,
    Thanks for stopping by to comment. This was my first shot with the LED flashlight as a lighting technique. While I can see where I need to improve but it was a fun thing to do. For one thing the room was fully lighted and I love how using the light made everything else very dark, it was the effect I was going for.


  2. Chica,
    I got three little LED ones for Christmas. I figured I could do something with them. I’ve enjoyed these few ones that I’ve done so far. I bet a flashlight and a Marble would be cool. I now have to get a marble for your challenge.

  3. I’ve done the same a few times with a white projector screen for a background. Found a coffee filter over the strong LED flashlight sometimes helped. I had trouble with the little separate bulbs of the LED showing up on the background.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will be back.

  4. Hey Star,
    Thanks for the coffee filter idea, I’m gonna have to swipe one from work. Not a coffee drinker and all. I’ll be back by your blog as well.
