Drawing with light

2014 / Photography


A light painting is created by the movement of a light, using a slow camera shutter speed, to create a image. Because this type of photography requires a long exposure. it is usually done at night or in a dark room. The exposure values typically range from 1 seconds to 30 seconds or more which is usually called ‘bulb mode’ of the camera.
