20 Mind Melting Examples of Light Painting



Light painting, or light graffiti as it is sometimes referred to, is a new frontier in creative photography. This is a growing trend on Flickr and other photo sharing sites. Often using extreme values for shutter speed (including keeping the shutter open indefinitely), light emitting objects become the paint brushes on a photographer’s canvas.

Photographers utilize their knowledge of the different colors produced by various lights, and how they interplay with white balance settings. Light paint brushes can be as simple as a flash light, laser pen, old lantern, or even off-camera flash combined with colored gels. Literally anything which emits light can be used as a paint brush.

In this photography inspiration article, I present the most mind-blowing examples of light painting that I have found in the last year. As you will see, the only limit to this art form is your own imagination. All of these were hand picked for your viewing pleasure!
