Something I have seen before but had no idea how it was acomplished so, in the words of Frank Sinatra "I did it my way".

F20, 6400ISO, a dark(ish) room, 1 egg, 2 torches a cut out chick and some wire then trial and error. Two images merged in photoshop.

' (not the final setup but you should get the idea).

IMG_7350/52

WOW, never expected this but I guess rules is rules and I should have just used the 1 image then photoshopped it.

I'm getting into light painting and using multiple exposures. For the record, whilst yes, technically these are 2 seperate images the only thing to change is a light source, the 'chicken' is still there just not lit, in fact this isn't the first submission using the same/similar method of lighting from different angles.

So as not to break the rules in future I'll just be entering basic challenges for a while if I like the topic.

Thanks for taking the time to comment Roz, at first I thought it was my post editing that was to blame ie using, the word 'merge'. Both images are an identical setting, nothing at all changes other than my lighting and as such I feel it best not to submit any more light painting images as changing the light is pretty much why I do it lol.

In hindsight I could have just used one of the images then recreated the spotlight in photoshop, that would (I guess) be totally legal but not what I wanted to do.

Oh and yes, as you say multiple images is for focus stacking, HDR and the 'something' you mention is light painting lol

im really sorry this got a dq .. it's a brilliant piece of art .. it wow'ed me when I saw it after rollover and it wows me now .. and the setup is wonderful ..
