Thanks! Its a glass fibre lightbrush, see BTL. Try it, it's fun!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my studio (which is basically a large office floor) in Rijswijk, near The Hague.
Time
As the studio cannot be properly darkened, we had to wait until after sunset.
Lighting
The only light source is a light-brush in an otherwise dark studio. This specific light brush has darkened fibres, such that only the end of the fibres emit light. The brush was moved over the model's body in a long exposure, while she holds still. She did a great job, thanks Aria Rainbow!
Equipment
The main equipment is the light brush with a strong torch. Otherwise it was a Nikon D800 on a tripod and a remote trigger.
Inspiration
I love the creation of abstract and out of this world photos, which require a second look to understand what the eye sees. Experimenting with a light brush creates such dreamy effects.
Editing
Some cropping, minor exposure and clarity correction. The photo is almost as shot.
In my camera bag
What I normally use depends on the shoot. In the studio I typically rely on a Nikon D800, but I don't think the equipment is critical.
Feedback
Make sure it's sufficiently dark and have enough empty space behind your model, preferably with a black background. Before the shoot, explain in detail to the model what you're doing, not everyone is comfortable with a brush on their skin in the dark... The person holding the brush should be dressed in black, preferably also covering face and hands. The model has to be completely motionless during the exposure, which is not as easy as it seems.
