I was scrolling through social media a few months ago and saw another photographer execute this concept. A wave of inspiration and curiosity came over me and I knew I had to try it too!
My friend, Lydia, came over for dinner recently and we decided to put it to the test. Check out what we created:
Want to try it for yourself? Here's what we did!
I went on Amazon and purchased this Fiber Optic Lamp.
On a tripod, I set up my Canon R6 with a 35mm lens.
I turned the lights off in my space and set my camera to manual focus.
I used my phone flashlight to shine light on Lydia while I corrected my focus.
She remained still while I dragged the light over her face.
My camera settings: ISO 100, f/5.6, with a 5 second shutter speed!
