Fireflies 2015!

June 18, 2015

The season for photographing fireflies is already winding down and the weather forecast is for solid rain for the next week. It seems like  we may not get another chance to shoot any more this year.

Below are a few of my favorites that are available for commercial licensing. They can be shared via the embed function for free for non-commercial use on blogs etc.

These are “hime” fireflies. They are also known as “kin” fireflies but technically are called heike fireflies. They flash rapidly leaving trails of dots.

 

 

Below are genji fireflies. Their lighting pulses leaving longer light trails.

 

Be sure to check out our guide to capturing them! If you have any questions feel free to post them in the comments.

European Energy Label Commission

It is a great pleasure to announce this news. In the fall we were contacted by the European Energy Bureau about creating some custom light painting images to go with the release of the new European energy label. It proved to be a really fun project and you can see some of how they were used here. The press release for the new energy symbol is here.
First up was to make some light painting tool that would create something similar to the energy symbol the European Energy Bureau uses to grade various products on their energy efficiency.
We started with color matching the symbol

A 110 volt AC powered LED bar was used as the base light

The set up was powered with a portable lithium battery

A stencil was needed to create the arrow shapes in the energy symbol

The finished set up looking pretty crappy but it certainly did the job

Shooting various patterns on black would give ideal elements for them to overlay other photos.

As well as the above designs we created a variety of headers and banner images for their various SNS channels and website.

All in all a very fun project that we are proud to be a part of. For those who missed the links at the top of the article you can see  how they were used here.  The press release for the new energy symbol is here.
