light painting using a darkened room and a flashlight.

original plan involved using a stencil to show raindrops, but I didn't have thick enough stock and it just showed a lit up piece of paper :D

post processing was pretty basic, just some color adjustments and curves.

I expect a lot of DNMC votes due to the umbrella not being in silhouetted form and the model not having a strong outline to her.

New PB, both score and comment-wise. Thank you all.

This is my unedited version for comparison sake. Spent maybe 10 minutes on the editing. Square crop is due to being able to see my living room table, wasn't sure if editing it out would be okay in ADV, so I decided not to risk it, and just cropped manually.


I like some of the out takes better, but for some reason or another, I kept missing huge chunks of areas with the flashlight.

This really is a beautiful capture! Normally, I dont see folks doing painting with light well...but this is a good example of where it actually adds to the image, rather than just being something cool to do. Well done!
