Title: Light Painting (24×36)
Date: 6-11-2011, 8:43 PM
Location: Ashton, Id
Camera: Canon EOS REBEL T1i; tripod
Settings: F-Stop: 10; Shutter Speed: 10 sec; Focal Length: 21.0 mm
Edits: I pulled this photo into Photoshop and added a Levels Adjustment Layer to it. That brought out more contrast and lightened the lights on the barn and tracker more. I then set up the image size to 24×36. I found out that when I went to put my guides in for the 2-inch wrap around, part of the barn was cut off. So I cropped the image down to 20×32 so I could choose exactly what I wanted to display on the face and then I added 4 inches vertical and horizontally to the canvas size. I then used content aware to fill the extra background. Then I took the dodge tool and brought more light into the tracker and bumped up the Sats, and there you have it. Process: To take this image I had to wait tell it was dusk and there was not a lot of light in the sky. I set my camera on a tripod and put my settings on 10 secs for the Shutter Speed and 10 for the F-stop. I put my self-timer on as well so I would not get any camera shack. Then Sister Esplin painted the barn with her flashlight and Dan and myself painted the tracker. When I say painted I mean we shown the light on the objects and traced it in a circular motion.
