    optional Camera Settings I was using these settings Shutter Speed 5 60 seconds Aperture f11 ISO 100 or Low 1 0 White Balance Incandescent for correct color or Auto for warmer colors Instructions Take the water dropper and place a bunch of droplets on the CD after you have put it on a table of your choice The table I was using was a laundry basket with a thin black blanket over the top Fancy Next put your DSLR on a tripod and place it right up next to the CD I was using manual mode with manual focus most of the time but not always a lot of DSLR cameras have an AF Assist Lamp in the front of the camera that helps focus in the dark in situations just like this In order to get my aperture to f11 I was using a simple ND8 filter in front of my lens This isn t necessary I just wanted my photos really sharp and f11 is the sharpest spot on my lens You can go down to f22 or smaller and skip using the filter if you want Just use the highest f number you can and the lowest ISO number possible This will limit the amount of light being exposed to the camera sensor which is what you want in this situation Maglites are bright Tips Try making different patterns around the CD with the Maglite flashlight A really cool one to do is to place the light level with the CD next to the table This creates a perfect circular reflection in the circular water drops on the circular CD Really cool Try pointing the light diagonally down on the CD and just try different directions and distances away from the CD You are bound to get a cool shot In order to help me be sure that I get the psychedelic rainbow colors on the reflective CD surface I Temporarily widened the aperture on my lens to f3 5 and then went into Live View Mode This makes it easy to see exactly what the camera sees so you know what direction to aim the light to get colorful rainbow effect After you see the rainbow effect appear on the CD in your viewfinder or in Live View mode get out of live view mode go back to smaller aperture you were using before and then take yo picture Video Tweet Tagged as artistic cd color colorful creative flickr instructional light painting long exposure maglite photo photography rainbow reflective surface tutorial video water water drops 17 Comments Newer Entries Older Entries Recommendations Entries Wineglass Splash Studio Photography Tutorial My Photography Best of 2013 Photography Masterclass is Now Online High Speed Powder Photography Tutorial Glowing Lines Photoshop Tutorial Open Source DSLR Announced D800o April Fools Multiple Exposure Photography Tutorial My Photography Best of 2012 Hybrid Image Optical Illusion Photoshop Tutorial Snow Photography and Special Effects DSLR Tutorial DSLR Basics Stops and Metering A Room Filled with an

    the video I was using regular peppers but you can use anything Legos coins lemons limes miniature pumpkins you can even just use your fist to punch the water in anger if you can t decide what to use The waterline was removed in Photoshop in the photo above If you liked this tutorial and want more be sure to check out my Trick Photography and Special Effects ebook video course Tweet Filed under how to video 88 Comments 17 Sep 11 18 Photoshop CS5 Surreal Portrait Photo Manipulation Advanced Tutorial Tweet About a month ago I posted this surreal photo manipulated self portrait on the Photo Extremist Facebook Page and it got a lot of likes so I thought I d share with you how it was done If you liked this video or like this website in general be sure to stop by and like the Photo Extremist Facebook Page Tweet Filed under video 18 Comments 19 Jul 11 28 Orbs Long Exposure Light Painting Photography Video Tutorial Tweet In order to make an orb you ll need some battery operated fairy lights speaker wire electrical tape and a functional arm to spin it with I recommend getting white LEDs because you can change the colors of them at any time by taping some Roscolux colored gels over them Once you ve got some fairy lights cut the two wires and extend them using speaker wire Watch this video tutorial by TxPilot to see this process being done in real time Now that you have your orb tool you are ready to start taking the light painting photo Set your camera up on a tripod and use manual mode with auto focusing off The specific camera settings you need to use will always vary it all depends on how bright the fairy lights are in relation to the environment they are being photographed in Sometimes I take one photograph with the camera settings adjusted for the landscape and then another separate photograph with the settings adjusted for the orb and then combine them in Photoshop by placing both of the images in a Photoshop document as layers and then selecting Lighten or Screen as the Blending Mode on the top layer Disco Planet by Vlue on deviant ART This was photographed in my front yard at night With a 30 second exposure taking place I used a large flashlight with large colored gels over it to light paint the tree foreground and even background After that I combined the photos in Photoshop using Lighten as the blending mode for all of the layers This was photographed at 4 08 AM on July 15th 2011 If you wake up early enough to catch the early dawn or late dusk light you can get both the orb and the environment properly exposed in the same shot without the need to combine the shots in Photoshop Your next best bet after dawn dusk light is to use moonlight A full moon

    the background It was being held up by a reflector holder which was attached to a light stand You can make the background darker if you move it further away from the fish tank but you will need something bigger than a 20x30 board A Nikon SB 700 Flash was underneath the tank on a tripod aimed up at the board you only need this flash if you are using a white background while two LumenPro LP160 flashes were attached to the two light stands on 1 32 power One LP160 flash was above the water aimed downward this casts the reflections coming from the water surface onto your subject The second flash was in front of the fishtank towards the right side aiming slightly upward at the pepper You can position the lights in any way you want this is just how I was doing it for this session You may want to get some adjustable brackets to mount to the top of the light stands in order to tilt the flash up and down All flashes have RF 602 receivers attached to them although you can set any given flash to Slave mode and it will fire whenever it detects another flash firing so you don t necessarily need three RF 602 receivers on all of your flashes if you are working in a small studio space like this you really only need one The RF 602 receivers can also be placed on any standard tripod screw so if you already have an extra tripod but no light stands handy you can just use a regular tripod The LumenPro LP160 flashes are only 170 and have the same amount of light output when compared to the Nikon SB 900 a flagship flash that costs 500 Keep in mind the LP160 s are manual flashes nothing about them is automatic This doesn t bother me at all because I mostly use manual mode anyway The camera that was being used least important item was a Nikon D300s with a 50mm prime lens and the RF 602 transceiver to fire the flashes when the camera takes a picture Last but not least The stuff you drop into the fish tank In the video I was using regular peppers but you can use anything Legos coins lemons limes miniature pumpkins you can even just use your fist to punch the water in anger if you can t decide what to use The waterline was removed in Photoshop in the photo above If you liked this tutorial and want more be sure to check out my Trick Photography and Special Effects ebook video course Tweet Filed under how to video 88 Comments Newer Entries Older Entries Recommendations Entries Wineglass Splash Studio Photography Tutorial My Photography Best of 2013 Photography Masterclass is Now Online High Speed Powder Photography Tutorial Glowing Lines Photoshop Tutorial Open Source DSLR Announced D800o April Fools Multiple Exposure Photography Tutorial My Photography Best of 2012 Hybrid Image Optical Illusion

    out a way to batch process a bunch of single RAW files so take 2 or more images And please use Manual Mode or Aperture Priority mode if you do this You need a program called Photomatix Open Photomatix up and select batch processing Choose the settings you want and be sure to tell it how many images are going to be used for each HDR composite and make sure 360 image is ticked on Batch process all of your photos and then stitch your new HDR images together just as you would normally in Hugin Perfecting The Stitch optional Yes you can take hand held 360x180 panoramas but when you do this there will be parallax errors especially if you are taking pictures of things that are close to the camera like inside an interior environment or if you were taking your pano right next to a tree or something The stitching software can t deal with this very well so your pano will be less than perfect To fix this you need to find the nodal point on your lens and then rotate your camera around that point while taking panoramas You will use a special tripod head to do that Finding The Nodal Point optional There is a pretty good tutorial on how to find the nodal point of your lens here it has pictures I recommend reading that to understand what a nodal point is Or you can do it my way It s a little different but it serves the same purpose To find the nodal point of your lens go inside and find a window somewhere Stick a piece of masking tape on the window Get a tripod and put the handle 90 degrees straight up in the air and then rest your lens on the tip of the handle Go wide angle and look through the viewfinder have the masking tape centered in the frame Keep in mind what is behind the masking tape on the outside of the window Rotate your camera to the left or right until the masking tape is at the very right or left of the frame You will then see that the object that was originally directly behind the masking tape is now a little bit towards the left or right of the masking tape Move your lens forward or backward just a little until you have found the sweet spot where this phenomena no longer happens when rotating your lens on the tripod handle The object that is behind the masking time should STAY directly behind the masking tape whether the masking tape in the middle left or very right of the frame Once you have found this point take a pen or something and mark a little dot on your lens to remind you where this point is You have found the nodal point for that specific lens and focal length You will need to know where the nodal point is to configure your purchased or DIY panorama tripod head Panoramic Tripod Heads optional If you have lots of money you can buy a pano head anywhere from 80 200 But if you are cheap like me you can make one yourself for a few bucks My panohead looks like this one The one I made is made out of wood and can only be used with my specific lens camera and focal length The tutorial I used can be found here How to build a panoramic tripod head This is probably the most easiest quickest design Just make sure that when you build it the Side arm is long enough for your camera to be pointed completely up enabling you to take proper Zenith shots The first time I made mine the side arm was too short and I couldn t take a proper zenith snot The nadir shots won t be ideal with this pano head but it is like that with any panoramic head You can t make the tripod invisible for pete s sake There are other panoramic heads where you can adjust the pano head for any lens camera combination but I couldn t find any useful DIY tutorials of these online it would probably be better just to buy one If you want to purchase a panoramic tripod head I recommend the Nodal Ninja It allows you to take full 360x180 panoramas Manipulating Panoramas in Flexify optional but recommended Flexify 2 is an EXCELLENT Photoshop plug in It is specifically designed for manipulating 360x180 panoramas In order to use Flexify properly you need to stitch your images using Hugin first Make sure you are stitching them in equirectangular mode not stereographic Once you ve got that done open your image in Photoshop and click on Filter Flamingpear Flexify assuming you already downloaded purchased the Flexify plug in and put it in your plug ins folder Click to see a screen shot of Flexify Next select the input to be Equirectangular and the output can be anything you want there are lots of options If you want it to look like one of those 360 planet panoramics select Stereographic or Hyperbolic Then set the Latitude to 180 or 180 And if you want to adjust the field of view mess around with the FOV slider Keep in mind that if you slide it TOO much one way or the other your image will look pixelated You can always readjust it Also keep in mind that if you want if you want this to be a square image you will have to resize it in Photoshop Image Image Size before you open it up in Flexify I did not do that in this example however Using Hugin Flexify is better than making stereographic images straight from Hugin because Flexify has more control of what you want your final output to look like It s just really nice to use and I highly recommend it As you have probably noticed there are

    enables the head to be taken off so it can be in candle mode This is great for physiograms and also any kind of light painting You will definitely have an advantage when using it You can easily change the colors later inside of Photoshop or some other picture editing program by adjusting the Hue Saturation and or by creating a new layer with the blend mode set to Color and then paint on that layer using a color brush Tweet Tagged as abstract bulb mode digital photography examples flashlight fun geometry glow guide light light painting long exposure maglight photography physiogram physiography spiral trick tutorial walkthrough 8 Comments 5 Nov 09 32 Multiplicity Photography Tutorial Tweet In this article I ll explain how you can easily clone yourself with a camera and Photoshop People call these multiplicity photographs When this technique is used in sports it is known as sequence photography If you find this subject interesting I would reccomend getting my Trick Photography and Special Effects eBook Imagination I had my mom take these every time I got into a new position I told her to take a new shot It went by quick and easy I replaced the sky with a more dramatic one and added birds I also did some dodging and burning on the play structure OKAY So here is how you do it Put your camera on a tripod and tighten it so it won t move Focus your scene and then switch to Manual focus so that your camera won t constantly be trying to re focus the scene You can shoot in any mode you want to but I would advise against Shutter Priority mode and just take the photos in full Manual mode or Aperture Priority mode This insures that each frame will have a consistent exposure and your aperture locked in After everything is in focus and you have your shutter speed and aperture set take a picture of the scene with the model to the left of the frame Then take another picture of the model closer to the right of the frame Keep taking pictures with the model s body in different areas of the frame You can get a friend to help you take each picture use a remote or use the self timer feature on your camera If your friend is pushing down the shutter button on the camera make sure they are careful on keeping the camera perfectly in place and not to accidentally bump into it Now once you have all your photos taken you need to import them into Photoshop Click File Scripts Load Files into Stack Then just select your images and wait a minute for them to compile Once it s done you should see all your pictures in the Layers window Select the top layer and click New Layer Mask it s located at the bottom of the layers window Next take a black brush and brush over the person
