Luminous Light Painting Photography

Light Painting is fun and very easy to do, and all it requires is a camera that can do long exposures, preferably around thirty seconds or more, and a couple of isolated light sources! Then you can go crazy with creativity by waving your light source around making patterns and lines in the air while your camera takes it all in.

Please pay a visit to the artist’s behind the photographs, and in some cases you may learn how they did their work!

A dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twlight Zone!
