What is Light Painting? Well, if you take your camera and leave the shutter open a really long time, you can use a light source like a flashlight to draw pictures in the air. I’m sure there are better explanations out there for this, but this one works just fine.
What do you need for light painting? A few friends, a camera with a shutter release cable, a tripod, a few flashlights, and a really really dark place. Last year I happened to have all of those things one fine summer evening, and there is what came of it.
Without going into the specifics as to why my friends and I were where we were, this project was very much spur of the moment. I hope to have the opportunity to do it again this year, and have been thinking of a few specific compositions I’d like to try…
