WOw, that' the cleanest extended shutter effect I've ever seen. He must have stayed rock still to get that.
I've done an effect like that. But, not with people. It was for my commercial photography class, and I was using a multiplane camera, and used a flare to fill in the shadows.
I tried something like this with some dancers for class, but never got anything like this...
Hey, Eurobeat, what is the cosplaying name of the person that partnered with Zero/Chris in the pink Mirai(?) Rockman.EXE suit? I'm sure i7ve seen her photos on cosplay.com before and I'd like to check them out if only I knew who to search for....thanks.
I just used the fill-flash setting, and you get this effect. Using no-flash is good if you just want to get the lighting-streaks, but if you use fill-flash you can see Chris in his Zero costume as well. Kewl, ne? ^_~
It's a camera effect.
In dark areas, when you increase the shutter speed, it allows for blur like this. Most advanced cameras allow you to adjust the shutter speed. Having the flash off probably helps as well but in order to avoid blurring the photo in such low light, you'll probably need to takee the photo from a tripod or some other stable platform.
Okay, I gotta ask, because I want to do this with my soon to be completed STAR SABER costume. Is this an in camera effect (I doubt) or were those streaks added later.
