A night out with a Harley!

I am pleased to report that I now have my lappy back and I am back on line…whoo hoo!

On Thursday evening a few keen photogs and a work mate cruised up to Lancelin for a light painting shoot and we had a cracker of a time.

On board were Steve Buchanan (the model), Flemming Bo Jensen, aka Flembot, Sven, Flembotaruny and ‘international man of mystery’, Peta North, the lovely Charlene, Nigel and Glenn Baker…’the cabinet maker’!

We were treated to a very cool sunset with just the right amount of cloud cover to give a nice soft light and some background drama.

Steve was a natural model and it was good to see him outside of his comfort zone!

Peta and Nigel…aka flash kings and queens were all over the scene for a while there with the numerous flash toys that Peta had to choose from and then after dark we set about do ing some light painting.

The resultant light painting image is a blend of 25 images.

We set off back to Perth at about 2200 which got me home at about midnight. I felt both excited and tired all at once

    Hi Mark

    You seem to be getting the hang of light painting!

    Do you have any color versions?


  4. Indeed I do Ian, but I reckon the black and white looks better.

  5. Peta says:

  8. nice set of image … my fav would be the first sepia toned one … wish I could of made this shoot ….

  9. Next time mate…Steve is keen for more…any ideas on a location where we could get him close to the water so we can get some water movement as well?

    I was thinking maybe Yanchep?
