Light Painting with Tutorials

Painting With Light

Light painting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source. It's a fun technique to dry out on a warm dark night :) For more information on light paintings or for tutorials, just Google around; it's a pretty popular and well documented technique. A quick search gives me:… (if you prefer written tutorials) and… (if you prefer video tutorials). A tutorial for light painting with portraiture is also available on my website:…

I've actually done this today in a performance, a workshop of a dutch performing group called pips:lab, so awesome! They do this one stage live, while improvising. I knew about light painting in pictures but I didn't know about it as an performance.(sorry for my bad English but I just needed to share this)
