Light Painting

Light painting is a pretty cool thing you can do in photography when taking long exposure shots. Shutter speed controls how quickly the camera’s shutter opens and closes. This allows photographers to control how much light their photos are exposed to. The longer the shutter speed, the more light the photo takes in. While the photo is being exposed, you can move around hand-held sources of light to “paint” in your photo, which can create really cool textures and effects without any post-production work. Since the photo is being exposed for a very long time, it is important to do light painting in a dark area to make sure the “painting” is visible.
