Painting with Light: Ben’s Guitars


17 Jun

Here’s an example of my work, using only a single LED torch as a light source. I lit each guitar individually before importing them into Photoshop and pasting all the different images together into one, perfectly lit image.

There’s actually one guitar missing, which is an Ibanez RGT42FX; currently getting some pickups changed.

Shown here is: ESP LTD SC607 7-string, ESP LTD V500, Ibanez RGA121 Prestige, Ibanez MTM1, Ibanez GR320 Ghostrider, Ibanez TC420 Talman and a Fender Strat copy that has been ‘Frankensteined’.

Shot on a Canon 7D with 10-22mm EF-S super-wide. 25sec @ f9.

I shot this image of my Ibanez Ghostrider 320 (GR320) back in 2000 or 2001 as part of a short course I did in processing black and white film. The frame and grain is all legit old-shcool film and processing techniques. I doubt I could still do it now without a refresher course.
For the guitar fans, the guitar is transparent red with creme binding on the body and neck. That’s a Seymour Duncan Livewire in the bridge position – and yes, both pickups work fine even though one is active and one is passive.
