The magic of books and imagination

Tutorials and Resources
- Light painting with portraiture: [link]
- Bounce lighting: [link]

Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + 50mm F1.8 Nikkor + IR remote. SB-600 for bounce lighting. Manual Mode: 5 second shutter at F1.8. The blue light is NOT PHOTOSHOPPED. The model posed and the IR remote triggered the flash. Assistant Curry Chern then waved a small blue light finger light as the model held relatively still for 5 seconds. The path of the blue light was captured due to the long exposure (light painting). The model appears perfectly still in part due to the initial flash (slow sync flash).

See the tutorial linked above for more information.

The best part of this image isn't the book or the light.
