Light: The (Not So) Secret Ingredient

Go out on the town with a project that will have everyone glowing: Light painting! Put your camera on a tripod, dial in a slow shutter speed, light up the Pixelstick and start moving it around in front of your lens! Here is a visual step-by-step how to do it and this package includes everything you will need: the Pixelstick LED Lightpainting Tool, the Canon 60Da, the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens, and a tripod/tripod head combo. The Canon 60Da behaves exactly like your standard DSLR but features a modified filter that allows for crisp, clear images of red – a color often difficult to resolve. This camera is also designed specifically for shooting bright events against dark spaces, making it perfect for astrophotography, fireworks shooting, and light painting.

  1. I read your comments on smugmug about lighting for photographing artwork. I am trying to figure out how to create xrite color checker profile and am having major issues. What version of Lightroom were you using when you wrote this? I have Lightroom 3. Will that work for what I am trying to achieve? Thanks.

  2. I have the exact same setup for ‘light painting’ and couldn’t agree more! 🙂
