Until recently my attempts at light painting all had to do with using a handheld strobe. A technique that created some very interesting and successful results over the years. Now I am moving on to using a flashlight to paint the scene and, as can be seen in one of my first endeavors, there is still a ways to go. The drainage structure illuminated with red and blue light came out as I had hoped but the blue background illumination of the surrounding foliage gives the image a fake quality that is hard to ignore. Highlighting small areas of the background in blue mixed with white light most likely would have worked better. We will see what lessons were learned in future attempts.
