One group, plus light-up balloons and glow sticks!
A bunch of random lighting… plus Emile creeping by the wall of the tunnel!
Brian Kratzer whirled a LED strip light in circles around himself to make a floating ball of light.
Our painting with light lab had to be one of the coolest assignments we’ve done so far. After a cookout with good food and good company, we packed up our gear and traveled to the eerie Katy Trail tunnel in Rocheport, Mo. We divided into two groups and took turns being the photographers and the artists.
These techniques were accomplished by setting the shutter speed down to bulb and keeping the ISO low as well. Our classmates posed, threw balloons, and played with light while we left the shutter open. The end result was very playful!
Then we had to turn in a “real” assignment we completed with our final group team. Here’s ours.
Henry Hellmuth installs low tunnels above a row of lettuce on one of Sustain Mizzou’s plots at the University of Missouri Bradford Research and Extension Center. This “mini-greenhouse” allows crops to grow a few more weeks despite the dropping temperatures. Hellmuth is a member of Sustain Mizzou.
By using flash, I filled his face and body with additional light. Without that, the side of his body facing me would have been darkened by a deep shadow due to the position of the sun.
