360 Light Painting-A new world-Part 1

360 Light Painting Since the beginning of art, technology has been giving artists keys to new, unexplored worlds. One of the few ways left to be original in art, if to be of the first into some new technology. 360 Light Painting is still fresh, unmarked ground to most of us, so I am positive that what I saw a couple of days ago in Facebook will be inspiring a lot of people into new territories.   Its been more than a year that I have been wondering how long it will take till I see something like this....

Remember to always shoot the light painting photos in low light, otherwise, you’ll just end up with an overexposed image!     Drawing the lightman The basic...

Photo of the Week 23

First of all, a big thank you to everyone who participated in our challenge of the week! And yes, we have a winner! This beautiful image by Gunnar Heilmann. Model in the picture was Lana.   Artist of the month June Hannu Huhtamo went through all the submissions and chose this one.

5 Light Painting Challenges that will boost your skills

One of my favorites photographers, Henri Cartier-Bresson, once said: “your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”  Although this idea probably was more accurate at the time of film cameras, when to actually shoot and develop 10000 photos would take you some considerable amount of time, the point is clear. It takes time and effort to become better in just about everything. There are similar theories about the time it takes to become an expert on something or mastering a skill etc. One of the common requirements all of these has – Commitment. Without committing to a goal, it is very...
