Light painting is becoming an increasingly popular art with artists around the world pushing the limits of painting with light. This form of art uses a long exposure camera along with a light source to create or enhance a photograph. The effects of light photography can be truly stunning.
This art surprisingly does not require too many equipment. With a good camera, flash light, a dark location and a nice tripod to ensure the camera sits still, you’re all set to go.
This technique involves two methods: moving a light around in the frame during a long exposure or using a controlled light source. Getting the optimal result in light painting isn’t always easy. It requires precise photographic skill, carefully choreographed performance and a wild imagination.
