How to Do Light Painting with the La Sardina

It was raining heavily one night and I was home alone, dying to take some photos. Hence, I took out my La Sardina and started light painting in my room. Let me tell you how you can do it in this quick tipster!

I placed the La Sardina on a tripod, set it to “B” shutter mode, and put on the cable release. Press the shutter (adjust the cable release to the locked position so that shutter remains open), switched off all the lights, take out the lens cap in complete darkness. Then, you can start your light painting in front of the camera using a torchlight.

After finishing with the painting, take out Fritz the Blitz Flash, and flash once on myself. Of course, I needed to strike a cool pose. In this way, both the light painting and myself will be captured.

You can have some fun with color filters.

I never realized that I can have so much fun home alone!
