About This Group

This group is dedicated to the photographic technique of Light Painting. This technique involves long shutter speeds and either a camera with a stationary light source, or a moving light source with a stationary camera. In some cases, objects are also highlighted with dynamic lighting in a photograph.

This group is not for every blurry photograph you might have accidentally taken.

Please be sure to browse the group’s work to get an idea of that this means – this is not a group to just throw anything involving light into. This group exists to both display your work and help others learn, so be kind and share your techniques!

Also, please put in your description how you took the shot. We don’t want to accidentally reject images that were indeed taken via the light painting technique.
