Here’s What Happens When You Take Your 360 Camera And Some Steel Wool Out For The Night

Here’s What Happens When You Take Your 360 Camera And Some Steel Wool Out For The Night –

 

Photographer Rod Evans took this 20 second long exposure with some steel wool (lit) and a 360 camera. He then took the raw image and gave it the ‘tiny planet’ effect. On reddit, where Evans shared the photo, he adds:

 

The camera I have is the Insta360 ONE. To do this shot I placed the camera on the ground about 2 metres away from me and set it to a 15 sec countdown timer which gave me time to find my position and have the steel wool burning and spinning by the time the camera shutter released. This is a 20 sec exposure. I took the image and distorted it in ‘Insta360 Studio’ to produce the tiny planet effect.

HERE ARE SOME MORE EXAMPLES OF HIS BEAUTIFUL WORK:

I went down to the beach on Saturday night and built this rock arch under the Milky Way. At first I tried to capture the scene with my wide-angle lens on my Canon DSLR but the composition wasn't right, the camera was too big and bulky and I couldn't get it low enough to capture what I wanted. So, I was about to pack it all up when I realised I had my Insta360 ONE camera with me, which is really tiny, so I set it up below the rock arch and this is what it captured. The backlighting came from me, at first I stood on the left of screen and flashed my headtorch for a second or two, then I switched it off and ran over to the right of screen and repeated the same procedure. This is not an award winning photo by any means, there is a lot of noise in the image, however, I think it's quite acceptable given that the Insta360 ONE is a very affordable camera (about $300) that has full manual exposure settings and can capture in RAW. This image is a single exposure. Exif: ISO-800, 60sec f/2.2 (the camera has an amazing ability to capture everything in focus). . . . . . . . . . . . . #insta360 #newsouthwales #byronbay #visitnsw #destinationnsw #abcmyphoto #picoftheweek #visitbyron #earthpix #camping_official #australia #discovernorthernnsw #nationalgeographic #australiangeographic #natgeo #lonelyplanet #rockart #landscape #rock #sunset #arch #milkyway #stars #bridge #ocean #pacific #rainbowregion #nsw #nswtourism

A couple of weeks ago I entered this photo into the Light Painting Australia 'reflection' challenge and today I found out that I won! Woohoo! I now have a Denis Smith Ball of Light Tool on it's way to me that I'm sure will be a lot of fun. I've already got a few ideas I want to try with it💡 This image here is a single exposure. I had not planned on capturing the Milky Way at all so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it on screen. An added bonus 👍🏻 Orb created with the LED umbrella tool (tutorial video here https://bit.ly/2uCJjAZ) Exif: 10mm, f/4.5 ISO-800, 77secs . . . . . . . . . . . #australia #lightpaintingaustralia #denissmith #lp #tlpicks #theglobewanderer #bdteam #vacationwolf #newsouthwales #passionpassport #roamtheplanet #seeaustralia #takemebackpacking #fodorsonthego #theimaged #ausgeo #longexposure_shots #orbup #canonaustralia #visitbyron #discovernature #nightphotography #nature #byronbay #nightscaper #discovernorthernnsw #spunups

This is an image I created recently with the wonderful @kyfurneaux. For several years now she has been rediscovering and honing her skills in bushcraft and wilderness survival and is currently riding the east coast of Australia on her motorbike, visiting like-minded folk and interviewing young girls in support of the Girl Shaped Flames organisation. She stopped in at my place last week so we got out in the front yard and had a little light painting session. Neither of us had eaten all day and were both starving, so when Ky spotted a possum in a nearby tree, she thought it best to whip out her bow and try and catch us some dinner! Nah, there was no possum, but we did have fun creating this image. I think it's quite symbolic of who Ky is and what she represents in life. She's an inspiring person. So, now for the technical stuff on the light painting… I stood behind Ky with my Magilight tool (basically a strip of LED lights that has a built in controller to change colours and patterns) and created this shape while she stood super still for about 13 secs. That's pretty much it. I wanted to do some longer exposures but was mindful of Ky having to stand so still with a drawn bow and arrow, as I didn't want her to get the wobbles, let go and accidently kill that possum… . . . . . . . . . . . #australia #bowandarrow #nature #lp #tlpicks #theglobewanderer #bdteam #vacationwolf #newsouthwales #passionpassport #roamtheplanet #seeaustralia #takemebackpacking #fodorsonthego #theimaged #ausgeo #longexposure_shots #bushcraft #canonaustralia #visitbyron #discovernature #nightphotography #nature #nightscaper #magilight #fotorgear

This is an image I captured recently in my backyard using my 360 camera. I created the purple orby thing with a long rectangular perspex blade (tutorial here https://bit.ly/2Lb80Pk) that I wrapped in purple and yellow cellophane. The Milky Way was shining bright that night too which was nice. Exif: ISO-1600, 60secs I created the tiny planet effect in 'Insta360 Studio' and then animated the stars in an app called Zoetropic to create this video. . . . . . . . . . . . . #longexposure #photography #nightphotography #light #night #canon #photooftheday #art #longexpohunter #lightpaintingphotography #lights #lightjunkies #lpwalliance #lightart #amazing_longexpo #cosmos #skyporn #earth #milkywaygalaxy #stars #galaxy #astrophotography #longexposure #night #sky #space #insta360 #nightphotography #nature
