Control VS Letting Go – TAO LP 2

Here is a good mind bender. Light painting is in great part about motion, movement. We, light painter, in most case, have to move our bodies to create our art. We can use control to do this or just allowed it to happen by letting go. Some people believe that being in control is the way to create and nothing else exist than controlling your light, your movements and the outcome. If you do, please go ahead and keep going, it isn’t wrong and does give some good results. But if you are a little bit curious by the...

Creating Light Painting Photographs using Photoshop

In this article I’m going to tell you all about the accepted way within the serious light painting community to create light paintings with Photoshop. In reality this could be a short article because I could probably sum it up in single word: “Don’t”.  It’s technically a contraction of two words, “do” and “not” and pointing this fact out could make a short article longer… but there’s a little more to it than that. What’s in a name, “Light Painting”? The reason this is even gets to become a bigger conversation is because people don’t all agree on what light...

The Art Of The Tripod Swap

Hello and welcome to my first proper post here.  I thought it was high time I got started with this blogging adventure and what better way than to share a really useful technique used in many of my shots.  This is part one of two where I’ll focus on the art of the tripod swap,  put to good use in the image below.

Create Something, Or Don’t.

Patrick’s article “Don’t bother with art, or do” this week is important.  Check that one out if you haven’t already.  He talks about various definitions of art and about various reasons that people create it.  I love the way he encourages people to just make what they want to make and to not worry about “OMG, is it actually art?”.  And yes, I totally based this article’s title on his. The question of art aside, I see a few reasons that people light paint.  Some set out to make a unique creation (okay, this is art).  Some people explore...
