Use led lights quite a bit for portraits and still-life
This was when I was playing with torches , as you see the light direction isn't at all coherent , it was shot in a dark room ,shutter open with one torch in my hand just painting the light onto the subject , takes a bit of practice but not as difficult as you might think. One of the great advantages is you have the quality of a direct light with bright colors without the hard shadows as the light is moving. I would talk into a sound recorder as I exposed sayingeg. 2 seconds from the right low done on white cahalks etc. This would give me a real time guide to make changes as I went.
I used a Led Torch for this one.
Used a UV torch for this. I think makes the banana look lonely and desolate.
Using 24 led hand held lights
Sorry I was a bit late with these posts - Too much to do at work
This was my first ever attempt to light by torch, so not quite as pretty as the ones other people have submitted.
The original intention was just to use the glow sticks to light the image; but they were feeble, so I had to combine torch and glow sticks to get the effect. It is not very sharp as the subject was moving and the exposure had to be long; but still a fun image.
