LIGHT PAINTING By Rian Neal
WHAT LIGHT PAINTING? Light Painting is photographic technique with longer shutter speeds to capture the light painting like this picture for example on right. There many different type of light painting you can do for yourself but it can be hard or easy challenge depends on what you planning to draw. Light Painting is just like art and people who doing light painting are artists. This light painting can show something amazing you can do when its night time or in a dark room.
HOW IT STARTED? Frank Gilbreth : First Light Painting 1914 He was the first to discover the how to do light painting, he didn’t want to do art but want to see how fast the people in factory working. Still 1935 Man Ray : Light Painting Photography 1935 He was the first person to do Light Painting as an artist and his work, as he called them, ‘Space Writing’.

WHAT YOU WOULD NEED TO USE? • Flashlight • Glow Stick • Grab anything that light up. • Tripod • DSLR Camera *Most Important Thing* • • Dark Room! Night Outside! No Light at all! Wear Dark Clothes
LED LIGHT PAINTING LED light painting is a torch light something you can use to draw in the picture. LED light can be very useful to draw a stickman or guitar that really isn’t there at all. And also it can be cool to use for your own toys like for example the well known manga called ‘Dragon Balls’, you can see the light coming out from his hand like its real. LED light drawing can be a little tricky to do to capture perfect shot.
GLOW STICK LIGHT PAINTING What Glow Stick can do? Glow Sticks can make things look more challenging and you can achieve amazing shots. Glow Sticks can make an image look like there are flames or smoke all around your body like these photos for example. The top right photo is flame all over the body but it can take a long time to do with glow sticks because glow sticks have weak light for DSLR camera to see. Very hard thing to achieve with Glow Stick!
HOW IT WORKS? 1. Start with Camera make sure you change setting into manual. 2. Most important thing to change the ISO number to 100, and Aperture to 5. 6 and the timer to 30 seconds. 3. Press to start the shoot then start painting your torch light but important thing is to make sure your torch light is facing the camera. 4. Work out the time you have left, if the 30 seconds had ended or you could end up being in the picture, which would spoil everything. 5. Have a look at the result of photo you have achieve. Best website step-by-step process video to teach you how. http: //www. bbc. co. uk/cbbc/articles/how-to-makea-light-painting
FACTS • What happened if didn’t use the dark room or used daytime light? If you didn’t use the dark room or use daytime light then your photo will be messed up and nothing happened like this picture I did a test for myself. • What happened if you move glowstick too fast? If you move glowstick too fast which mean the photo won’t appear or it will show a very weak light like nothing’s there at all. More Facts will be on Blog and Moodle for you to access. Daytime Photo Failed.
MY OWN LIGHT PAINTING When I learned about Light Painting I started doing tests and experimenting for myself and I ask mates to help me with the project. It was successful with Light Painting on my first try. The top image shows I used an LED light torch. This shot shows I used a Pink Glow stick I also experimented with an Orange Glow stick
