Cave Dwellers:OLD VERSION by BenDiAnna Cave Dwellers:OLD VERSION by BenDiAnna

Valley of Fire, Nevada.
Part Two is here: Cave Dwellers: Part 2

Light painting this was great fun. I used a normal flash light with a cone taped in front and stood right next to each opening to paint it, it was very steep and difficult but well worth the effort :)
This picture to me is mysterious and unearthly, giving something of a primal feeling, which to me is the general feeling that Valley of Fire conveys.

Never would've guessed this was light-painting, seems like quite the undertaking. However, it evidently paid off, what a shot!

Hey this is a really clever idea - this deserves more attention. Definitely worth the effort of running around on those slopes to get this shot, well done!

so, did you take multiple shots or set it to bulk and just ran the camera while you were running around and painting it or you had an assistant?

I was by myself for this one so I left the shutter open and did it all at once myself. On part 2 same thing, except I had an assistant that time :D

out of this world. good job with the light painting i have never done it is it all that hard?

Not hard, but there are little tricks you learn from trial and error; like making sure to cover the flashlight or not point it at the camera so you don't get streaks of light appearing where you don't want them, or using different types of flashlights for whatever effect you want, finding the right camera settings for timing and exposure, the list goes on.
It's wicked fun, give it a try! :D
