    Light Painting Photography!

    Hey guys,

    This is literally my first attempt at light paint photography - but I'm pretty happy with the results!

    Looking forward to experimenting more with this photography style.

    What do you guys think?

    Haha. All good.

    Basically the camera shutter is open for 10-30 seconds. In that time, one light is used to 'paint' the car. The camera sensor picks up only the information it can 'see' and therefore giving this unique, studio-esque look.

    I did one of these in my driveway and the other behind a local basketball stadium. Both had very little ambient light. Once the camera is triggerered, I use the one light and move around the car. Obviously the camera picks up only the information that is lit whilst the shutter is open.

    That looks like DSLR-level camera/lens?

    Yeah, you need a camera that you can use in full manual mode to control shutter speed, aperture and ISO.

    Hey Paul,

    Happy to mate! My photography skills are all self taught, so more than happy to pass on what I know. ?

    Shoot me a PM whenever you're ready.
