Challenge: Painting With Light II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon PowerShot A85

Aperture: f6.3
ISO: 50
Shutter: 6.0s

The Jazzman isn't doing so well in the duotone challenge, so I thought I'd give him another try in Painting with Light II.

For this one, I used two moving light sources. I used an LED flashlight for the "music" and a 40 watt desk lamp to light the background. I made the music first, just to be sure it looked like it was coming from the saxophone, then grabbed the lamp and flipped it on and off once while sweeping it past the figure. Took a million tries to get it right!

Processing:
Curves, Saturation, Channel Mixer, Curves, Neat Image, Unsharp Mask, Border

A great Idea. I love the photo and will be marking it well for this reason. However, I feel that the light should start a little higher up so that it would look as though it was comming out of the saxaphone and not from behind. This is not a critisism just my opinion. Well done!

The blue and orange complement nicely. The statue is an interesting subject. 9

Really good idea! If only the light were aligned with the bell of the horn it'd be fantastic. Not sur why you didn't re-shoot it until you got it spot on.

Hey I recognize this guy from duotones, still a good fire effect though.

I could see this as a collection of art in a jazz club. Very creative and eye-catching. 10
