Light Painting

Light Painting

Light painting, also known as light drawing or light graffiti, is a photographic technique in which you manipulate the shutter speed on your camera to 10-30 seconds to allow more light to be captured in your picture.  The exposures are made usually at night or in a darkened room by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera.
