Incredible Light Painting Product Shots Lit Using Only an iPad and an iPhone

This is just awesome: professional-looking product photography done using nothing more than a tripod, an iPad, an iPhone and your camera of choice. Given the extremely affordable nature of the process, the results are downright epic.

The project was undertaken by photographer Laya Gerlock, who shared his work through the folks at DIYPhotography. One night, he came up with a simple challenge for himself: light paint using only the iGadgets he had on hand. What he settled on was using his iPhone to light the subject itself, while using the iPad for background patterns.

Here’s a screencap of one of the final shots (you can see the full set in high-resolution on his website):

The process is pretty straight forward: just set up your camera on a tripod and frame the shot/dial in the focus with the lights still on. Then turn the lights off and start shooting. Gerlock reveals that his ‘starting point’ is a 20 second exposure at ISO 200 and f/8, but you’ll have to play around with it to get the best results.

Once you’ve got the basic idea down, feel free to experiment. Switch it up and use a quick flash to light your subject or mess with the patterns in the background for a different feel (check out what he did with these bottles!)

As with every cool technique or trick we show you, feel free to drop us some examples in the comments once you’ve given it a shot. And if you’d like to see more of Gerlock’s work, head over to his website or Flickr by following the corresponding links.
