5_Xie_Bill_Light Panting Reflection

In the recent weeks I was focusing in a program called Light painting. That program is really impressive because I learned how to create some amazing pictures and how to set up the camera. There are 4 pictures in my binder in order to illustrate my personality. Those pictures are trying to say that I am vivacious sometimes and diffident sometimes. I think those pictures show my characteristic very well. I used the ghosting in my first picture. There are 3 different in that picture, one is praying, second one is dancing, and the lasting one is doing something silly. That idea is really creative for me because it illustrated 3 different characteristics about me in one picture. I used the reflection of mirror in dance classroom, thus there are lots of me in that picture. In additional, I used very strong light and laser point to decorate my picture. The third one was took without any light, and the only technique I used is laser. The picture looks spectacular and that picture is my favorite. The last picture described I was playing Christmas light as a whip. Those pictures are all come from my own inspiration. The technique I prepare are laser, flash light, plastic bag, and some color papers. By the way, I have 2 excellent teammates.

The light painting project seems easy, but there is full of challenge. The first challenge is to set up the camera. Light painting program asks for a totally different settlement of camera. It is hard for me to play with my “Good friend” although I learned it for a whole class. Fortunately, I got it when I tried it over and over again. The second challenge is to use the technique and control them. Final result would be influenced because of a little mistake of the technique. We always took a picture for at least 10 times, and we choose the best picture in them. We felt exhaust before, but we still made some fantastic photos. I am really proud of it.

I learned a lot from light panting program. I finally knew that the camera could create such nice picture. I knew how to set up the camera in different situation. I also knew that hardship to make a prefect picture. Lastly, I really want to learn how to use adobe photoshop to make up my photo if I have enough time. That will be a fantastic trip.
