Biped Chunnel

Posted: August 5, 2012 in Light Painting, Nikon D90, Ohio

My brother in law and I found another interesting location for some light painting. This is a bike path tunnel near Tipp City, Ohio. It’s a pretty awesome location because it’s pretty vacant after dark, but there isn’t very many random drug-addicted people that hang out here either.

So, onto the technical details for this shot… The final image here is a combination of 2 images blended in Photoshop. The first shot was created by taking a portable flash gun with a green colored gel (colored plastic sheet) covering the strobe, and then flashed all over the walls repeatedly at about 15% power. This shot was combined with another where we moved a green EL wire cable around and around and around to create the “smoke” or “mist” you see on the ground. Finally, since the EL wire shot took so long (Maybe 3-5 minutes or so), there ended up being some headlights from a passing car that illuminated the right side of the tunnel wall and gave off the bright point at the left hand side of the tunnel opening.
