Fabulously rich image!

Nowctell me how you “light paint” and what in your mind is your intent with shadows, as you are also potentially painting in black and shades of grey too. It seems that a risk of light painting is that one obliterates shadow. So what is your way of approaching this or you just “do it” and what happens is just what we see?

Hi,

I'm using a certain time of daylight and the possibilities of sensortechnology as I do a controlled overexposing, a sort of "diving into the light", until I find the light I'm looking for.
And as "photography" per se means "painting with light" I do exactly that.
This doesn't work everytime of the day or weather, on any place where the object is positioned; you have to experience it.

What light do you use and what about the problem of erasing nice shadows or creating harsh ones?

Hi

... just the available light. It's all about the balance between available light and overexposing.

So tell me your procedure. You block light selectively or you have a window in a sheet of card?

Now this is one sexy flower photo... so, so nice. Love the voluminous shapes opening up and giving us a small interior view that entices. Just wonderful! :-) Maggie
