Lighting of the Lanterns
Posted By: codiac2600, 01-17-2009, 07:03 PM

A shot that took a long time to setup and I won't go into everything that went into it, but lets just say a total of 5 hours were spent for one image.

K20D with DA* 16-50 f2.8

Clarification please Chris.

You're saying everything in this shot was setup by you FOR you!!!!

None-the-less an excellent shot and ditto what Peter said.
Well, technically yes it was setup for me in some regards. This was shot at a private japanese garden here in town, someone built the lanterns, and the lighting was brought in. I was the wizard of pocketwizards for the shoot and had some direction in how things were done. It was shot to make a huge print to hang in the gardens lobby.

Thank you everyone for the kind words

Chris it's great. What I really like is the sky. I get that the lights must have taken a long time to set up but the sky and stars included is such a great finishing touch.
Takes a long time to set up the sky, let me tell you. Like billions and trillions of years.

edit: awesome shot, of course.
