The Actual Light Fight

October 2, 2011

Last week’s post was entitled ‘Light Fight’ but, as some of you may have realised there was light, but no fight. The reason was that I was intending to post the photos shown below but… didn’t, and then subsequently forgot to change the title.

The photos below were taken in the pitch black when we were in Kent. I’d thought about them before hand and then was pleased to have so much fun creating them. Maybe next time we’ll get costumes ๐Ÿ™‚

So, Ammar (left) and Steve (right) having a thunderbolt fight, followed by Steve breathing fire…

The camera in each case was set to bulb mode. The guys got into position and held still in the pitch black. I then painted them with a 5 million candle powered torch, and finally ran over with my LED lights and then painted the fighting lights for each of them. Since I was moving fairly quickly and wasn’t lit, I thus don’t appear in the photograph at all.

Hope you guys enjoy these.

Have a great week… ๐Ÿ™‚













  1. Awesome!
    Kind of like lightsabers – with a twist!

  2. These are fun shots. I like the image of your friend breathing fire!

  3. Impressive work!

  4. Very creative!

  5. What great fun!!

  6. Very cool! Wise choice to avoid using a flash and going with the torch… it’s a much more “unplugged” effect that way!

  7. That looks like fun.
