Flashlight Photography -an artistic approach!

Photography of our beloved flashlights based more on an artistic way and spirit!

Flashlight photos shot from a 'different' angle and seen from another point of view!

Hope we all participate and enjoy Smile

Very cool pics…nicely done!

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

You show some high quality pics here.
I usually like 2 types of object photography #1 is very plain almost sterile, object on white background and done and #2 is object nicely arranged with other stuff

Your photo number one is just nice to look at, I like shallow dof from time to time,just to make things more interesting.
Your second photo is in category #2, nice shot nicely arranged.

keep’em coming

Thank you guys!
I mainly use a Nikon D7000 and occasionally a Nikon D5000 but the difference is made all by the lens.
I have a couple of Nikon macro lenses which are ideal for macro/close up photography.

Wow, i saw your collection at flickr and i can say that i am really impressed!!
Not only you own the skill/technique but you have the ‘eye’ of a photographer. This is a charisma!

I am new to dSLR photography and the main reason for entering the field was macro/closeup photography. My flashlights could not escape from being my macro victims!

I will keep them coming, thanks Smile

I shoot with an older Canon DLSR, but none of that matters much anymore anyway. Any DLSR made in the last 5-6 years will take excellent photos. I like the idea of photographing flashlights in an artistic way; it ties two hobbies together. Let’s see what I can shoot…

Welcome the night.

Enjoy.

Thanks for posting - these are wonderful pictures! Someday (maybe when I retire) I would like to take up photography as a hobby.

I’m not sure that Victorinox qualifies as a pocket knife anymore :-).

yeah, thats no pocket knife anymore for sure.
they are actually made to be a dealer sample displaying all possible tools a swiss army knife can have. or thats at least why they started out making them that big
would love to have one, but ouch… them prices are crazy these days

Dale, i think that Thrunite TN31 is a well worthy top flashlight model! It is very photogenic, to say the least Smile
