This Light Painting Time Lapse is very special to me as it is my first attempt at a Hologram Photograph. I discovered this technique of photography thanks to an article by PetaPixel (Link Below). The article is about a photographer (Andy Leach) using a video compiled of 1,871 high-resolution cross-section photographs of human anatomy known as the Visible Human Project to create an eerie light painting photograph.
I loved the idea and decided to give it a go with my own light painting time lapse technique which you have seen before on my channel.
After a lot of trial and error I finally figured out the settings and gave a single 20 second exposure shot a go. Worked out pretty well. I then started the process of making the Time Lapse.
In the video, I'm moving the laptop inch by inch (give or take) during the 3 second exposure shot. I used an interval of 2 seconds thinking I'd have enough time press pause, move the laptop and press start again. In hindsight, I should have kept it at around 4 seconds. Things got pretty tight :).
Leaving the immense back pain aside ;), the final result is what matters. I think it's pretty amazing. One of my favourites for sure.
Hope you guys love it as much as I do :)
