Believe or not but this photo is only lightened with one light source, a little led led-torch ( with only 65 lumen. The thing I did was first took a overall shot slightly overexposed for 30 sec f 8, without any light except for the street lantern (natrium). The next 4 shots, also 30 sec. f8, I light painted the walls, roof, grass and tree with the led-torch carefully. In photoshop I brushed the unwanted parts (not light painted) form the 4 layers away.
This experiment is a part of a photo shoot in Normandy, where I try to get almost the same result photographing the remains of D-Day this month. Of course you will see it here :-). Until then thanks for your support.
