Making a light tube painting is a wonderful process. It's much more than pressing the shutter button. You have to make an effort to make the coloring page perfect. And as far as I'm concerned, you don't have to color within the lines with light painting photography. You set the rules yourself. However, there are a number of things that can go wrong or have a negative impact on the end result. Let's deal with these one by one: 1. Do not intentionally rotate the tubeIf you look at the Rainbow and the Nordic series of tubes, you will see...

Sometimes people ask me: what is your best photography workshop or course? A really difficult question, but at the steel wool workshop I always have a big smile on my face. What starts with a small spark quickly becomes a spectacular shower of sparks in the photo. I also think the location is important because you want to make an image with a foreground and a background. This gives color and depth. We use a slow shutter speed and shoot on a tripod. Important is the balance with the background but also the amount of sparks. A shutter speed that is too slow has too much...

aperture, diaphragm, Photos, wide angle lens, depth of Field, telephoto lens -

When it comes to depth of field, we all immediately say: aperture. Because aperture simply determines the depth of field... or is it just a bit different? Because why does one photo at f4 aperture differ from another at f4? First, let's go back to what depth of field is. In the blog about focusing, we learned that you can only really focus on 1 point (1 distance) and that the rest is out of focus. But with depth of field you can 'stretch' the sharpness a bit, so parts in front of and behind your focus point also become sharper for your eye. And how much for and...
