Light Painting

Hi Mii Fans!

Ok mi fans I was asked to create this new thread about light painting and maybe spark peoples interest in trying something new and creating and capturing intresting images with your xiaomi lets get into it!

First of all what is light’s a technique of moving a light source while taking long exposure photographs either to illuminate a subject or light at the camera to draw’ , most of every household has the basic tools to do light painting and comes in various forms from having many different lights from..phones,fairylights, flashlight,christmas lights ect! So how do we start as i don’t want to get to technical, first off you need to know your camera settings in pro mode,... (PRO MODE WHICH I HAVE INCLUDED IN THE PICTURE BELOW TO MAKE IT EASY FOR ALL TO FOLLOW)!!!

Pro Mode settings are really basic for this, as in the screenshot..... WB auto, Focus is set to infinity, Shutter Speed 15s, Iso 100, the higher the iso the more brighter the image becomes but you want to keep this as low as you can as the higher your iso the more grain it will cause also known as noise , So for this new thread to take shape and get up and running we are asking for the following: To start off with we are asking of mi fans!! so go grab a light source and wait for it to become dark and use the settings as in the screenshot above and create some dazzling images....the only thing we ask is that you tell us what was used to create the image and place also location as any of the following aren’t adhered too they will be removed from the thread..thanks all for your corporation, this new thread will be updated in the weeks to come with new ideas on what to use....

Thanks. mark9271
