Trying my hand at some low light and light painting photography. These shots were taken of my mouse using a 105mm macro lens.
Image 1: I placed the mouse on a glass breakfast table on top of two sheets of tissue paper and placed a flashlight underneath the table with tissue paper on top to diffuse the light. I then used another flashlight with a red gel attached to highlight the rear of the car. The headlights actually turn on and have the xenon blue light glow. D300s 105mm ISO200 F/22 5.0S tripod with cable release and 2 flashlights.
Image 2: Same setup as #1, but put the red gel over the flashlight at the bottom of the table and used a green gel on the flashlight to paint the car. f/14 and 4.0s

I dig very much the look of the first one because…
• of its very credible "night time" light effect,
• the choice of non-conflicting colours,
• the better control of the shadow under the car,
• the DoF stretches where the details are, at the back, (although not quite enough!),
• the very effective gradient between the red and the blue (too bad for the specular light on the door),
• the "stage" set up is very dramatic.
