I saw some Jim-Pops light painting posts (google Harold Ross), and I was inspired and tried to give it a shot. Images were taken in a totally dark room and I used a home-made diffused flashlight on the subject. Each exposure was about six seconds. And then I brought them into photoshop and blended them the best I could using masks and the Lighten mode. Was lots of fun and I now have a new way to photograph my miniatures - though for small stuff, you don't have much control. treasure.jpg

Love the still life process you have here Piet. Do you use a macro lens for your miniatures?
some time - I've got a 100 mm, but DOF is the biggest problem I think, for these minis, it is probably closer to shooting flower buds or something, more close up than macro, and I don't know much about it...

I thought you meant defusing as flooding the environment but I see you're spotlight defusing, more control I suspect. Interesting! S-

Yes! However, for small stuff it is probably counter productive. Next time I try this I will funnel the flashlight into a smaller tube so that I have a truer control - since I am moving the light, I don't have to worry about the strong edges anyway...
