Atmos Spheres

Location: Malibu, CA / Settings: (Composite) Light beings at F5.6, ISO 100, 143 seconds. Spheres at F5.6, ISO 1600, 4 seconds. Environment at F2.8, ISO 3200, 17 seconds.

Gear used: Canon 6D24-70mm LensManfrotto TripodWireless Remote, and Night-Writer prototype. Eric used a clear plastic tube with flashlights clipped to the end for his spheres.

Not content with only one meet-up, Astro Bandit and I decided to hang out with Eric and Kim for another night before our friends caught a flight back to their home town of Montreal the next morning.

For this image, we took to the cliffs of Malibu at Leo Carrillo State Beach once high tide came in. You can see orange lights on the beach in the distance - there was a film crew capturing underwater footage. 

For this shot, I wanted to add another alien image to my growing collection, I thought Eric's circles would be a great futuristic addition for my colorful characters - how else would they breathe?

Embryonic - (Collaboration with Eric Pare)

Location: Los Angeles, CA / Settings: (Composite) Circle at F4.5, ISO 1600 3 seconds. Skeleton at F5.6, ISO 100, 59 seconds.

Last night I had the pleasure of meeting up with fellow light-artist Eric Pare along with professional dancer Kim Henry - I've been familiar with Eric's work for some time now and it was great to collaborate on some images together.

There will be more to come next week, but I couldn't resist putting together this photo before the weekend - two very different light-styles you don't often see together in the same image.
