My second experiment with lights for Paula Wood's new short film, Order My Steps. Here I'm experimenting with lights out of focus in the distance forming a circular blur. The two lights I used were a lamp using a 75w bulb (shown in one shot), and a small battery powered flashlight. I've found that both seemed to work despite their dramatic difference in light output. This stirs a new curiosity... how do different intensities of light effect a blurred flare?
This was also my first attempt at animating slow shutter light streaks... I didn't take nearly enough photos to do what I wanted... but it was a good attempt and I love the effect. I'm sure there will be more to come.
