When looking at this picture, the uneducated public assume it’s a “photoshop” type image, but to a light painter like Tobias Maximus this is nothing more than simple light painting. In this example the picture is the JPEG from the camera and let me assure you – it’s 1 shot, yes all done in 1 shot, no editing at all.
The image has no reasoning, the image is about what can be achieved with trial & error and some patience.
The location was interesting enough – an old ww2 underground shelter and let me tell you – it was pitch black in this shot, i could not even see where i was sat.
HOW WE DID IT
We used flash and snoot.
