Specialist Photographic Light-Painting

Some subjects are either too large, too small or too open-plan, to light creatively by conventional means.

Inside Out Photography (IOP) use a technique of multiple exposures and a hand held ‘roving’ flash-head to take light where-no-light-has-gone-before.

Architectural Light-Painting

Open plan spaces, or interiors with an abundance of reflective wall surfaces, are traditionally almost impossible to light, as there is nowhere to place a light without it appearing in the shot. IOP can use light-painting to breath light and texture into the darkest corners of any interior even heavily mirrored spaces.

Above are a selection of approximately twenty-five different exposures, moving around and lighting direct sections of the room, also including a separate exposure for window detail.

Below is the final composite exposure with the photographer and any negative lighting effects or reflections removed.

Industrial Light-Painting

From giant storm-drains large enough to take a mini, to small intricately detailed products, IOP use multiple separate exposures, to do what was previously impossible, creatively blend & mix soft, hard, direct and angled lighting in one single image to produce stunning effects.

Multiple exposures are then later assembled to produce the finished image.

Want to change a certain element of the multiple lighting?. No problem; even well after the shoot has been completed.

Due to the unusual specialist nature of this photography service
IOP tend to work further afield of the Manchester and Derbyshire area base.

Your image is your future: trust it to a true professional!
