I had the great opportunity to connect with night photog Joe Reifer. His work caught my eye with a very somber feeling. He seems to capture images that I might pass over, but I would choose first for a frame in a feature film. His aesthetic choices balance light and dark, warm and cool, better than most traditional artists. Enjoy his work and his words! Some Photographers mentioned in the episode — Steve Harper — The Nocturnes (Tim Baskerville) — Tom Paiva — Lance Keimig — Stephen Walsh —
1 — light painted with a flashlight from 2 different positions.
2 — light painted with a flashlight from 2 different positions.
3 — exposed for cloud streaks. a person stood in the image wearing a sheet for part of the exposure time to create the ghost (with flashlight painting on the sheet).
4 — interior shot lit by turning on the lighting in the room, and using flashlight for subtle foreground fill.
5 — film shot with no light painting.
6 — digital shot with no light painting.
