Light Painting is an artistic photographic technique where light sources are manually applied by photographers to a single long exposure frame, usually in complete darkness. Long exposure photography has been around since the early days of daguerreotypes. Early artistic light painting photographs began to be created in the early 20th century by master artists Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Man Ray and Picasso. Since those early days, light painting has evolved to become a genre that is growing in sophistication and popularity across the globe. Light painting photographs are often mistaken for being “photoshopped” due to the surreal and psychedelic effects that are created. While artists use a variety of light sources from simple flashlights, lasers and LED lights to ignited steel wool, electric wire and pyrotechnics to illuminate their photographic composition, they do not use post-processing software to enhance their photographs in any way.
