I took my old roommate, Brian Bell, out with me to do some night photography a couple of weeks ago! He is just a good sport when it comes to the patience you need for some of this… but as we were trying to do some long exposures, I remembered that I had a big spotlight in my trunk and resolved to do some light painting of the river and boat dock there. I think this turned out pretty cool… and Brian thought so too. As a matter of fact, he loved it so much that he has been telling everyone that he took it. It’s Brian’s Photo.
Here’s to my Professional Light Painter – Brian Bell.
Okay I just have to say I’ve been given undue credit. Anything I did in the creation of this photo was under the complete direction of the true artist… DO! Any peon with arms could have done what I did. My only claim to this piece is that Dustin Olsen would condescend to be my friend. I am honored to know him and I have the highest respect for his masterful work. He is the best! Love ya Dusty 🙂 Thanks for the experience.
You did great! Not everyone has a natural talent of avoiding swirling lines and light streaks when they are light painting! Thanks for going again, that should be a favorite past-time.
Dustin… this looks great! I love the blue sky and how you lit up the dock and trees. I’m loving all of the night shots you have been taking lately, keep up the great work!
This was such a fun light painting. The part was that it was spontaneous!! I am just glad that the light lasted as long as it did for us so we could get the shot.
Dustin I love this!! I love the reflection of the clouds in the water and the way the sky looks. wtg!
Thanks, Emily! This. Turned out really good. Because of the reflections, it’s a “trippy” when you look at the photo upside down.
