Mao Becky Light Painting Reflection

I have learned a lot and enjoyed this lighting painting project, because I showed my thinking, worked with my teammates and tried the knowledge on paper in the truly photography. The name of my four light painting pictures are Conflict, but in my photos the things are not only about the collide of myself, but also some thing that I really precious. In the first picture, I want to directly show the conflict, so I use two color—blue and orange. To shows the contrast of myself. Because I want to let the inside of myself looks like the shadow, so I wear the black cloth, go to dorm, and did not use the flash light to print myself on that side. Instead of the shadow on the wall to be myself in the picture. The second picture is under the first picture. To get this picture I first stand straight and used the blue light to print my self, then used red flash to draw a human skull. To show the conflict of my opinion that I sometimes feels lonely, but my opinion tell me that I cannot let this emotion comes out. The third picture is on the right of the second. In the third picture, I used two tripods to finish. I first let the camera to record the background on the computer then I use black clothes quickly cover it. After I wear the big sweater with hat, let my group mate print me. I am trying to say my escape in this photo. The forth photo is a picture of my hobby and the thing I precious. The background of the picture, I use the same way as the third photo, but in this photo I wear a blue hat, carry a guitar. I am trying to say only the guitar can make me keep peaceful, and the blue hat means calm and peace. All of these pictures I used the pre-focus, and because I need a long shutter speed that more that 30 second, so I let my teammate continue press it until I finish to crate the picture.

The biggest challenge in these photo is to draw human skull. I tried a lot of time to draw it. Because I should make sure it has the same hight with me and I need to measure the size of the human skull that shows off in the camera. Besides the difficultly of drawing human skull, I always need to make sure my teammate print me clearly. We always can see the picture with a good human skull but a burly person stand opposite it. The successes of the picture is I crate a way to have a fancy background without go to the truly place. That makes my picture looks better and easier to show the things I want express in the picture, and the way to do that I write in the first paragraph.

In the light painting project I learn a lot of that heavy black machine. I know the camera can pre-focus and the shutter speed can be changed even whatever time of the shutter speed you want. Through taking photos, I find that the dark color will show in the photo. Although I think I did a good job of light painting project, but I also have some failing. Such as I did not print myself very clearly, so if I have time I will learn how to print something clearly. Also I want to learn the other master’s techniques to take light painting picture.
