A Little Monday Morning Light Carnage

Being an old newspaper guy, I like to have my publishing schedule set a coupla weeks in advance. But when something cool, timely and/or viral comes along, you gotta rejigger on the fly.

For example, today was to feature an On Assignment of a soprano. But she can wait until tomorrow, because this is some epic light painting with an order of speedlights on the side, courtesy Freddie Wong.

We, of course, start with the BTS vid above. For the final product, hit the jump.

The Results

Oh, yeah, I thought most of you would like that one. (Six percent of you likely have higher standards for your Monday time-wasters.)

You can see more from Freddie on his blog.
