As a follow up to the article we did on “Long exposure photos“, I wanted to share some awesome examples of light painting. Light painting is the process of leaving your shutter open for a long period of time and “painting” in what you want to expose with a light (can be as simple as a flashlight) Light painting can come in many different forms, sometimes it is used to highlight certain parts of a building or landscape. Other times the light is used as a brush from a painter, the artists interact with the landscape and creates shapes and lines that create a piece of art.
Here are 10 amazing examples of light painting:

There are some very talented artists in this field right now and a movie being made about some of them. We interviewed the director of Luminary a little while back and will post that interview soon.
