Seattle Mural Artist Eras is back in town for a bit, doing a new piece at Eastside Lounge in East Atlanta. Eras invited me out for a few beers and to hang out while he finished his piece. I was able to snap a portrait and do a light painting with it, check it out:

I spotted several promising locations while driving around Marietta and went to check them out last night. Pretty disappointing unfortunately. 3 of the 4 were far too close to a major road for my comfort, and the 4th was sealed up pretty good and I couldn’t get in. I did manage to grab a few pictures from one location:
A friend of mine has been checking out my light paintings and invited me up to his workplace to use as a shooting location: a Fire Station! I had a blast and will probably return to do more shoots at a later time. I’d like to thank my friend as well as all the Firemen I got to meet while I was there.

I’m loving Wednesdays these days, finally back in my element in a dark location with my camera and a handful of lights! I’ve missed light painting, and I’m cranking out some cool stuff these days!
All of these photos are SOOC (Straight Out Of the Camera). No Photoshop trickery or editing has been done. We used a long exposure and various sources of colored lights and techniques to achieve the effects we wanted. Keep an eye out, we’ll be doing this regularly!
