A tribute to The Lady in Red
7410.jpg
by 31.gif Seeker, who also gave me advice on how to deal with the background and elimination of stray lights.

Seeker states in his comments that lasers are difficult to control. I realized that I wouldn't be able to get precise streaks if I handheld the laser, so I invented a little device which made painting more regular.

***
Thanks for the comments and votes. Here's the little secret: I glued the laser to the centre of a handheld fan, so the laser's point would rotate in a smooth circle.

Brilliant idea attaching it to a fan. The results are fabulous.

It is my humble opinion that you outdid the shot you were inspired by. I believe this is a much better shot.

this should have gotten the blue - excellent shot.

A beautiful piece of art - irt's existentialism is remarkable alongside its juxtaposition within the realms of aesthetic visual alignment in a very real sense. Its presence in a hall of fame would be further justified for its inclusion in a gallery of esteemed works.

Great tits.

This is fantastic! I'd also love to hear more about your invention. Congrats on the Red.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2007 12:15:31 AM
You pulled it off! I've so badly wanted to do a shot like this (Seeker's shot has bee in my faves for a long time), but my own experiments showed what you mention - that painting parallel lines is very, very hard. Can you describe your invention a little more?

Congrats on the ribbon and executing this so well!

Delightful; subtle, sophisticated, abstract but not completely so. The blue adds a nice touch here. 9

Interesting image ... appears that model is lit with light filtering through something like a venetian blind rather than with a handheld moving light source, but still an interesting graphic effect.

Very cool shot. I hope it scores well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2007 09:38:02 PM
love the use of these lines to outline the body - very creative execution of light painting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2007 08:09:08 PM
interesting! Was that a moving light source, painstakingly moved by hand again and again?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Am I colourblind or is that a green lady?! Great photo ;)

06/09/2007 01:19:39 AM
Nice shapes and its a nice angle for the light Perhaps a warmer colour could have been better, good luck
