so im guessing the exposure was less than 15 seconds? cos when i have done light paintings i have used 15 or 13 and i get a fair bit of the background...i love the hula hoop idea...such a better result than running around with a torch
Cheers man, I got the idea for the hoop from a guy called Stu Jenks, i havn't seen anyone else using this technique though. He actually emailed me before after seeing my DA page, pretty stoked with that.
The hoop just has led torches attached to it, I use a handheld flash to expose the rest of the scene.
