Location for light painting?

Postby Wink on Sun Jul 25, 2010 8:38 pm

Hi everyone!

I've been asked up to Brisbane to do a car light painting photo shoot like the the photos in the below thread...
http://www.dslrusers.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=38938

Could anyone recommend some good locations for this type of photography?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

:cheers:
Adam.

One of the local car owners is going to check it out for me.

I'll pass on the suggestion for it to be dark. :D

Perfect Adam, Now you just need to make sure that the lights are switched off here.

I contacted the artist and he was really helpful. He's got another private location as a possibility also.

I only use one light, but it's portable.
In the other shots i put a bit of light onto the wall after lighting the car. I can always move the car away from the wall more or light it less if it looks to strong against the car.
