Here are some sweet examples of light / slow shutter photography. We plan on doing a Photoshop tutorial showing you had to simulate these types of effects so subscribe to the RSS feed. In the mean time, be inspired by these sweet compositions!
light painting can be a creative release that is not only easy but looks cool. Usually only carried out by enthusiasts and professional photographers, it’s a technique that is primarily used at night outdoors to make scenes look more dramatic than they would under normal conditions. Light painting is not a new thing either, it’s a technique that has been used for over 100 years.
also known as light drawing or light graffiti is a photographic technique in which exposures are made usually at night or in a darkened room by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera. Using a slow shutter speed allows for a completely different style of photography – from light painting to capturing smooth water effects. In this article, I have shared some of the best light painting photography there is. I have also provided a few links on how to create such awesome light paintings. Lots of inspiration to seek from the links.
Making a light painting
doesn’t necessarily need to be done in a dark room or at night. Sometimes using artificial light, like LEDs and mobile phones, or through the limited sunlight beaming in a curtained room creates a shadowing effect. Using a mirror creates a double image, which adds up to a more creative result.
