Oh YES!!!!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my studio in Rijswijk, near The Hague. It's basically an empty office floor with all the charme thereof...
Time
We had different setups for the shoot, but we could only start with the light painting after sunset, as the studio cannot be darkened.
Lighting
The only lightsource is a light-brush. 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 he holds still.
Equipment
The main equipment is the light brush with a strong torch. Otherwise it was a Nikon D800 with a 85 mm lens on a tripod and a remote trigger. He sits in front of a black paper background.
Inspiration
The model is drummer / composer Hendrik Eichler (hendrikeichler.com) who needed cover shots for his various projects. I really like the mystic atmosphere created by the light brush.
Editing
In post, i did some minor processing (exposure, contrast, clarity), 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 with a Nikkor 85 mm, but I don't think the equipment is critical.
Feedback
Make sure it's sufficiently dark and have enough empty space behind your model, a black background helps. Explain in detail to the model what you're doing.Have fun!
