Camera settings for tube light-painting – #40

[Music] [Music] what are the perfect settings there are no perfect cities and I’m sorry the answer is not as easy as put your camera on bla bla bla it’s a bit more complex but not that hard once you master this basic thing expose for the background the trick is to expose for the background first so when you get a good exposure what I do usually is I put I should for about one second and then I adjust the settings of the camera so I make sure the background is about okay in a one second exposure and then I just adjust the brightness of my tube to fit with that background since we’re shooting towards the sunset it’s gonna be super bright at the beginning and then we’re gonna go through the whole blue hour until the night is pitch-black and we have the Milky Way so there’s gonna be a huge contrast between like those two moments the first moment when we start against towards the sunset and the last pictures when we’re gonna be like shooting only with the stars so Eric is gonna comment along the way at which setting he’s at and also like at what what are the power of his flashlights yep I’m going to start with my brightest tube which is a t2 a milky white tube with a slice of foil inside of it and I’m going to use five thousand lumens that is two flashlights at the bottom and two at the top and I’m going to end up the night with a simple t8 clear tube with only 25 lumens inside of it and what do we put on top of that t8 tube it’s a very high-tech tool that we use it’s a piece of toilet paper okay I’m going to try to shoot for about one second exploded sitting for flashlights to the bottom two on the top f-14 iso 200 and I removed I removed it two flashlights on top I’m going to replace that [Music] [Applause] [Music] okay sorry the battery died gonna use it better oh look at that friend oh hey the battery died but we ended up shooting a lot of stars at F 2.8 ISO 1600 on one of the cameras and the other one was f4 iso 3200 which is about the same thing one is a 40-minute or the other one is 1635 and now there’s nothing left of the blue hour it’s totally dark but what we saw over there is the Milky Way and it’s so bright we can see it clearly all the way through the sky I think it’s the most beautiful they ever [Music] [Music]

  1. What's the best flashlight, camera, trigger, brand of shoes, type of backpack, tube case, and type of cheese for light painting? DM me now or I'll be very upset.

  2. I like very much your photos and videos.
    Most important than ISO, speed or aperture is the art you express with the light. Is inspirate
    I became fan. Congratulations.

  3. Love it … lol I hope this time u guys must be having that insect repellent . which i suggested in the last video comment section .. Great going .. would love to see more videos from u .. M addicted now hahaha …

  4. Thanks for making these videos, The fabulous results are plain to see but they also demonstrate your generosity of spirit. You both seem like lovely people.

  5. What about whitebalance? I have some issues sometimes when I´m shooting with tubes and have my WB at Auto. Depends of what color the tube is. But I don´t do Auto anymore because of that. What do you do with the WB, Eric?

  6. Have you ever done shoots like this but in the completely opposite environment (like a city)? That could be kind of interesting. Love you stuff, though.

  7. Great video, Eric ! Just one question. You stressed on ONE SECOND exposures. So model is frozen in a specific pose, you make several one second exposures as you light paint and later composite them in post process resulting in a final image without motion blur?

  8. Hi eric! I love your work thanks for sharing all this info.
    I have a little question… How do you get from 2500 to the final 25 lumens? Your flashlight have a dimer or how do you do that? Regards

  9. Great work man!! I have a couple of questions for you
    Firstly, don't you have diffraction defects shooting at such a low aperture?
    Secondly, do you use ND filters to help in some shots?

  10. Eric, Kim : Just thank you to make me dream. Your pictures are unbelievable. I Watch this video 3 times. The music make me fly. BRAVOOOOOO !

  11. thanks form posting, this clears up a lot of questions I had.
    one thing. when you mentioned tin foil. is the a piece on the inside so the light reflects back down the tube?


  12. Hi Eric, one of the most interesting videos I have seen on this topic! Like!
    I have some questions,
    1. Why 2 cameras, are they focusing on foreground and background?
    2. Did you use stacking?

  13. Hi greeting, am still a bit nervous on ur creative setup, regarding the "light tube painting" my question is hw did you set up the shooting; did you just shoot and then paint or it was shot on continous shoot?

  14. Maybe Kim is being eaten by mosquitos because she smells like the bologna you plastered in the center of her back!?? 🙂

  15. Hi Eric, I’ve been trying the light photography but I’m in the picture. How is it that you are not in the photograph? I’m new to photography and don’t really understand this.

  16. Are you using any flash? I keep scrubbing my head how to do you get the front of model so bright as you're enlightninig her from back with dark background
