Advanced Techniques And Process 2A – No-daylight brief – proposal development 3

Within my proposal i have decided to explore light sources of glow sticks and sparklers to portray identity through portraits.For this shoot I have decided to use sparklers in order to gain an understanding of how they light up a scene and the different effects they create from glow sticks.

From the images i have shot i have discovered that the longer the exposure the brighter the  light and more movement captured just like with the glow sticks. However the sparklers create more light which lights up the background unlike the sparklers – which is what i want to capture.

I shot these images using a trigger release and bulb exposure as sparklers can be dangerous and they also run out quicker than glow sticks therefore i stopped the release once the model has created their signature in order to save time and capture as many shots as possible using the light sources.

When i next shoot sparklers i am going to explore a range of shutter speeds and locations to see the best exposure and how the exposures affect the background/model of the images.
