Experiments with Light painting

So it was an early morning car drive on the airport road, the weather was cool and foggy, never forgot the canon 1300d with me, decided to try slow shutter shots while the car was on the move, this resulted in a beautiful light painting pics.


"Light Painting Photography is the Art Form of using handheld lights to paint and/or draw in a scene while the shutter of a camera is left open during a long exposure photograph. By shooting in a dark location and using photographic technique of LONG exposure photography (lets say a 30 second exposure) the flashes, streaks, colors, textures, and trails of light created by our light painting tools and modifiers can be captured in your photograph without the use of any post production. Exposure times for light paintings can range from just a few seconds up to an hour or more"


This was the starting pic as you can see the speed at which the car was moving. exposure 1 sec. with F/16 aperture

The journey from here was amazing

Went on increasing the exposure by units of 1. exposure 2 sec

exposure 20 secs
