Timelapse videos are made by taking thousands, usually tens of thousands of still photos and editing them into a sequence during post productions. Suhada employed a few other techniques such as camera pans and hyperlapse video (timelapse video taken while moving), both of which only contributed to the gorgeous photography making this timelapse a standout in its class.
Look closely and you will see the silhouette of a person, or some palm trees, or even a seagull flying by. There is virtually always something that the photo is about other than the pretty colors. It may be only a visual whisper, but it’s there, and it is what separates the image from just another sunset photo.
Here’s your cool photo exercise for the day: A smoking light bulb. It’s an awesome experiment for not only the photographer, but also the electrician, the carpenter, and even the physicist in us.
To retain those bold shadows, but soften the light on his model’s face, McNally used a Lastolite 32” Trigrip Reflector panel, positioned as close to the model as necessary to interrupt the flow of light spilling onto her face without affecting the light striking the back wall.
No matter what kind of light you’re using – whether it’s an Elinchrom Octa, a regular soft box, or a straight, hard bulb – different parts of the beam (the edges vs. the centre) will always have different qualities.
The use of proper lighting in taking photos is very important. It enables you to take clearer images that you can be proud of, particularly in an environment where light is low. But to be able to achieve your goal, you need the right accessories for your digital camera.
Light painting with LEDs is a no-risk gig, but painting with fire requires photographers to go to great lengths to ensure that subjects feel comfortable with the idea that they might get zapped by a stray spark now and then.

The butterfly light is the most easy and flattering light to illuminate a subject with only one light. Learn how to achieve it.
Darren Pearson’s still frame light paintings are impressive enough on their own. He uses flashlights in the dark to sketch out intricate figures. The forms he paints–angels, dinosaurs, aliens, sea creatures, and skeletons–are difficult for most of us to draw with pencil and paper, let alone with beams of light.
