Anyway, light painting is a form of photography in which you use a slow shutter speed and a strong light source. The photos are usually taken in a darkened room or outdoors at night and the light source or the camera are moved. Because of the slow shutter speed, the camera records the lights' movements and this results in lines of light on the exposure. The earliest record of an artist using this technique is in 1935 of Man Ray and his "Space Writing."
Picasso also has portraits using this technique...
I didn't start out thinking about light painting today but as I was I trying to take a photo of the moon, it came to mind rather quickly. We were in a moving car and trying to get a photo at night of the amazing yellow dot in the sky was not working out so well..... then the whole light painting idea popped in my head and these were the results.
Not bad for a first attempt.
