These 4 images were used to see how the flash can be used in differnt ways in the studio, using studio lighting. This consisted on a flash reflecting off of an umbrella and a box light. By using the studio lighting we were able to control the levels of light coming onto our subject and were able to adjust our exposure accordingly. We took an image using the incorrect synchronization speed which made the light not hit the whole image within the speed of the shutter being open, resulting in half of the image being dark as seen in my top right photograph.

Here is a triangular chart to show how chaning one setting on a camera, will affect all three of the settings and the photographer will need to adjust them accordingly.

Here are my second examples of painting with light. Unfortunately my laser pen is so bright that in some images the background was shown. My friend Bobby was the one who drew the images whilst I used the camera using the BULB setting to control the shutter, and an aperture of F.5.6. The ISO was set to 100.

To learn about how to draw with light, I drew some of these photographs including the flower (bottom right), the person, and the strange square (bottom middle). I did not have my camera so had to be the one to draw some of these images.

This experimenting showed us as a class how to set up our camera’s, controlling the Shutter speed, setting it to bulb, controlling the aperture, setting it to a small F. number, and controlling the ISO setting it as low as possible. It is important when taking a photograph of a moving light source to use a tripod so the image will be as crisp and accurate as possible. Another factor to bear is to focus the camera manually, as most camera’s will struggle to focus in dark conditions.

Light Grafitti or Light photography is a way of drawing with light whilst taking a photograph. It is usually done by moving a light source in a certain way across the background of the image to be taken. It is achieved with long shutter speeds and small apertures with an ISO of about 100. With these settings the camera will allow lots of light into the lens, but will not be overexposed as long as the area or studio is dark. The long shutter speed will allow the light source to move across the image, enabling the photographer to draw with light.

Michael Bosanko is a very well known photographer for working with light and doing light grafitti. Some of his projects are huge and must take ages to plan and undertake. The end result of his projects are absolutely fantastic and he is one of the best light grafitti photographers there is. All of his images have the perfect exposure, and great clarity making his images look extremely professional.
