Okay, I promise this will be the last snow or ice night photo I’ll show you until next winter. Spring has sprung and it’s time for warmer thoughts from now on. Personally, I’m already getting excited about shooting fireflies in a month or so.
In Part One, I talked about all the features a photographer should look for in a flashlight. If you haven’t read it, please do so before reading this one. It contains important stuff you need to know. Here, I’m going to name names and make specific recommendations. First, full disclosure. Yes, I offer all the flashlights discussed Read more... you know you want to.
I’m working on my upcoming review of light painting flashlights and thought I’d post this shot as an example of what you can do with a flashlight and gel filter. The blue front lighting is from an LED flashlight with a light blue gel filter attached using a GelGrip™. The background side lighting is another Read more... you know you want to.

I’m working on a series of articles about light painting gear and techniques and thought I’d start out with a quick primer of just what light painting is. I have to admit that I don’t know if there is such a thing as an “official” definition. Wikipedia gives it a shot, but I really don’t Read more... you know you want to.
Okay, one more waterfall and I’ll see if I can find something different for tomorrow’s nightly image. You know the drill by now, right? This is a static star image, so I shot it at f/4, 25 seconds, and ISO 1600. I light painted the waterfall with, you guessed it, an LED flashlight with a Read more... you know you want to.
Are you tired of waterfalls, yet? Hope not, because I’m gonna be posting a lot more of them over the next weeks and months. For this shot, I used the same technique as for Thursday’s waterfall.
