The art of light painting
Share this

Light painting is the art of drawing in the dark, while experimenting with forms of moving light during a single long exposure photograph. Light painting has grown in the last couple decades, largely due to the instant capabilities of digital photography. To paint with light, you only need a light source and any camera that has the ability for longer shutter speeds. The key to light painting is creativity, and the imagination knows no limits.
