Light painting portrait

Canon 24-70 f14 ISO200 5 second exposure at 45mm.

I picked up some battery powered LED lights this week and taped them to a piece of plastic tubing to have a go at a light painting effect we wanted to try and achieve. This was a first pass in the garden. Kaya is lit by a softbox just to her right, triggered with the Youngnuo 601. It’s a big softbox (Westcott 90cm), so at f14 / ISO200 the 580EXii was a full power and maybe 6 feet away at the most.
