Fluorescent Sculptures, LED lights and Smoke

Some more experiments in finding different props to use to make enchanting illuminated scenes which will move and interact with smoke on video.

Angry Fish in the Dark

A Fimo fish with a pearlescent finish. Leds under water cause the glare in the smoke.

Fluorescent floaters. I’m planning to develop the use of this material.

 

Smoke, coloured lights and fluorescent sculptures

I love the way that the smoke weaves patterns, it’s a fun thing to capture in a still.

A little bit of underwater background lighting adds more dimension to the smoke and depth to the image.

This is a “new styling” for adding new names to my massive library of photographed names, which I may update at some time. Names In Lights

 

Sensory Lights for Relaxation on YouTube

Here’s something new. Since updating my camera, I’ve been revisiting the tricky task of photographing art made with changing lights.
The video capabilities of my new camera are much better, and I have been experimenting with using my “water standing letters” to make relaxing sensory videos. I’m adding elements such as candlelight, swirling smoke and bubbles; aiming to make something soothing yet watchable.

These are the first two ( to be fair, they’re pretty similar), the intention is to make a series of them, developing the style into something even more intriguing.

I’m pleased to say that I have had some great feedback from adults on the autistic spectrum and one of my objectives is that these films should safe and appropriate for kids, on and off the spectrum. I would love to get your feedback, so please add your comments, questions and suggestions, either on this post or on YouTube.  If you subscribe to my channel, you’ll be able to see when I add a new video.

The music tracks on these films are from the YouTube collection of music that you can use with attribution (see below for credits) , although I’m currently looking into creating a “soundscape” for each film, with a focus on non-vocal  ASMR type sounds, which will describe the rolling mist and bubbles.
