Painting With The Light

posted on 5th of june, 2009

Today I came across lots of information about painting with light. It's an exiting area of photography. Just wanted to share some links with you.
First I have to start with Wikipedia definition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_painting

And here are some tutorials, howtos and examples:

And when you like painting with the light, you just have to see that: Sprint flashlight-animation commercial
or this:

Or the whole movie: Light Painting Movie

Or check out this guy. He is a real light magician: LED Painting - hat trick

Neat, eh?

I played around with lights some, don't know how to make them do what I want, but they're pretty.

Great! Will we see the results?

Comment by Maigi on June 06, 2009

Great! :) I played yesterday the whole night. It's really tricky to get it "right", like you imagined. And we have very short nights right now also, approx 3 hours... :) I discovered, it could be a really good entertainment for long winter nights. ;))
