Came across this article today 10 amazing light graffiti artists and photographers. These people use a variety of techniques to add/draw/enhance an existing scene through the use of light only.
How do you come up with images like this? The basic technique involves really long exposures and then either “drawing” using a light source, or lighting up the scene with directed flashes/spotlights/etc. I’m sure the guys that came up with images above have some special secret techniques too!
It’s something I wish I had time to experiment with besides the basic sparkler drawing photos people do!
