Light Painting Photographer Erin Simmons has recently published a new Light Painting Tutorial showing how he has been creating his extraordinarily unique spirograph light paintings and I am so glad he did! When Erin first posted his spirographs I was amazed, if you are familiar with light painting you have probably seen numerous spirographs but Erin’s are DIFFERENT! When someone in our community creates something unique and not seen before that is exciting! As a light painter of course I want to try to figure out HOW? I tried a few different times and I couldn’t figure it out, in a strange way that also makes me happy… Thankfully, in the true spirit of light painting, Erin has shared his technique with us! The name of this post says it all, its a simple addition to creating a “normal” spirograph and that is to TWIST the hanging light before you spin it! Erins technique is another great example of a simple twist creating extraordinary images! Check out the tutorial Erin made below and make sure to give him a follow on Instagram @eelskie
