LP Seminar in Okinawa was Awesome!

We had a series of light painting workshops this past weekend down in Okinawa which were a huge success. LED Lenser Japan, Light Painting Brushes, and Lomography Japan supported the event with some great door prizes. I also owe a huge thank you to Chris Willson Photography.

Quicktip! Shutter releases

Shutter releases! What’s the deal? Too long that it hangs down by your feet but too short to use as a regular remote for when you need to be in the picture. I don’t get it. Who chose this length? It just dangles around in the dark just above ground level.

Quicktip! for Lens fog

At certain times of the year lens fog and even ice can be a real problem when photography at night. Of course, this is going to vary depending on where in the world you are located, but here in Japan it is almost all year. Especially when the camera is left to time lapse the night sky.

LED Lenser X21R.2 vs Kokubunji Temple

Just a quick post to show what can be done with just a flashlight at night. This requires no special technique really and more just a bright flashlight. We went for a night shoot at Kokubunji Temple in Okayama, Japan. There was a full moon high in the sky so not many stars are visible.

Orion Rising

I have not had the opportunity to do much night shooting recently. Commercial work has consumed most of our time leaving no time for any personal photography. I decided to change that this week and pushed all my work aside for the night to go grab a few night shots.

Bouldering at night with a LED Lenser H7.2

We were recently on a job to film a bouldering competition here in Okayama, Japan. When we wrapped up filming for the night we had the chance to do a little bouldering ourselves. This was the perfect opportunity to test out LED Lenser’s H7.2 headlamp. We would have a hike through a pitch black forest where we need all of 250 lumens as well as be face-to-face with a granite wall where we could test the lowest power.

The light performed excellently. The zoom was really useful for extra reach and the nice wide beam was great while climbing. The adjustment dial on the back made using the light super easy. If you are in the market for a headlamp we highly recommend the H7.2 from LED Lenser.
