Light Painting Photography in Nature and Cities by Vitor Schietti I've done plenty of steel wool long exposures, I even asked my high school girlfriend to prom by using steel wool and light painting. But these add a new element to it and I love it.
This is a great example of a simple light painting photograph. This gives a fantastic vibrant affect on the shoes and its laces. The light trail affect has been created by a light source tracing around the subject.
“In LIFE photographer Gjon Mili visited Picasso in Vallauris, France. He showed Pablo some photographs of ice skaters with tiny lights affixed to their skates jumping in the dark. Picasso was immediately inspired, these photos were the result.
Move toward the light ~ Lightpainting photography isn’t always this awesome. These snowman were done using a five minute exposure on a pitchblack night with a full moon. Each snowman was created using a flashlight to trace around the edges of a person.
