Light Painting Tutorial, How To Light Paint a Light Man
In this Light Painting Photography tutorial Jason D. Page shows how to create a Light Man, or Woman, using a simple technique and tools from the Light Painting Brushes system. This is a technique that can be done when shooting alone or you can use a model to make it even easier. By simply tracing yourself or your model with light during a long exposure photograph you will leave a illuminated light being imprinted on your film or cameras sensor. An easy technique to help create extraordinary images!

Check out this incredible Light Painting Photography Animation created by Jinchao Wu! This is a great example of when light painting and a little bit of post production come together to create something extraordinary. Inspired by the work of Lichtfaktor Jinchao shot over 10,000 individual light paintings to create this 2 minute stop motion! He used After Effects to sync up each of the 10,000 frames to the music and to animate a few sequences. This light painting film took nearly 2 months to create and all the light painting was created in camera. Check it out below and for more of Jinchao’s light painting work check out his Vimeo page HERE.
