Challenge: Painting With Light II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: London, UK
Date: Feb 27, 2006
Aperture: f/20
ISO: 100
Shutter: 39 sec
Galleries: Abstract, Humorous
Date Uploaded: Feb 28, 2006

RawShooter: adjust exposure, fill light, convert to tiff.
PCS: colorize, resize, save as jpeg.

Camera on tripod, set to Bulb. Used a Cyba-lite Micro to draw the man sitting on my sofa. Stopped at joints to produce the star effects. After drawing the man illuminated the whole room with 3-4 sec of desktop lamp light, to make the sofa visible.

a Cyba-Lite is a very small white LED torch, one of those that you can find in Outdoor sports shops.

Neat. A bit noisy, but considering the requirements for the image, acceptable. It's like a constellation sitting on your sofa.

Should make Top 10. Creative and excellently orchestrated with the light. The rest of the picture is fairly plain, but the effect is likely enough. 9
