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.

Light Painting Artist Patrick Rochon has teamed up once again with Infiniti, this time it was to to Launch their new luxury vehicle the Infiniti Q30! With just a single months notice Patrick created some exquisite light paintings of the Q30, a light painting video featuring a illuminated hero of his own creation and he even pulled off a live performance in front of thousands of people at the famous club O1ne in Beirut, Lebanon.
Patrick said “This project gave me the opportunity to demonstrate lighting a car using 100% light painting; generating images in camera that are sexy, layered and close to finished without spending days of retouching reflections on the car to make it look great.” Here are a few of the images Patrick created with the Q30.
With that much to do in such a short time I think most of us would have been in full panic mode but Patrick has been in these situations before. Being one of the most accomplished commercial Light Painters today Patrick was able to pull his team together and rise to the occasion! I especially loved the concept of revealing the car using Live Light Painting (check out the last video). Bravo Patrick well done!
Check out the videos below, and for the full story head over to Patrick’s website HERE.

This is pretty interesting, The Treble’s new music video for their song “Wherever You Go” was created using a pixel stick. The idea of creating a light painting stop motion using the pixel stick is not a new concept however the way that The Treble did it is pretty unique and true to the spirt of the Light Painting Art Form.
The video features the “Wherever You Go” lyrics light painted into over 2,500 photographs from artists around the world. The light paintings were then stitched together into a stop motion animation for the final video. Check it out, a full list of artist credits can be found below.
