Well here is my first light painting attempt. It took me awhile to give it a go because none of the hardware shops sold any light that was paintable !!! (Bad Joke)

Anyway this was done on a black background (my jumper in fact) using two exposures; one of the paint brush nicely exposed and the other of the actual lights. I didn’t have anything fancy for the lights, one was a small LED torch with a piece of paper over the end held fairly close to the surface and the other was a small blue LED that was in a keyring.

It took me a few attempts at getting something I am happy with but am actually quite pleased with the results so comment, criticise and critique and let me know what you think.


Cannon 500D (RAW)
18 – 55mm IS Kit Lens (18mm)
30 Sec Exposure
f 22
ISO 100

Minor adjustments in Adobe Lightroom 2 and blending of images plus increased contrast through curves in Adobe Photoshop CS4

Again, any comments, advice or criticism would be greatly appreciated

Cheers, Danny
