Laser Pointer Abstract – How I Took It

Laser-Pointer-Bulb-SettingOver at the Forums in the ‘tells us how the effect was achieved and how it was taken:

This image was taken using Bulb mode. I was at my friends house where she had this small crystal lamp that looked like a mushroom.

I sat down still and she would open the shutter then lock it.

She would shine the laser pointer at the lamp which made it glow and cast red around me. Then she would highlight me with the laser pointer. I have several images like this.

I really like doing these types of photos because your never sure what your going to get. In the future I would like to be further from the camera but zoomed in and get more even lighting with the laser pointer.

My right arm isn’t lit as well and the right side of the image looks kind of bad.

You can see other pictures like this on my flickr page

  • Camera: Canon EOS 20D
  • Exposure: 75 sec (75)
  • Aperture: f/11
  • Focal Length: 31 mm
  • ISO Speed: 1600

While it might not be ‘perfect’ (the right hand side does let the shot down a little) it’s definitely an interesting technique that could lead to some very interesting results – thanks for sharing murtasma and keep perfecting this technique!

If you’ve got an image that you’re proud of and that we could learn a thing or two from we’d love you to share it over at the Flickr Account
