Light Painting

Light painting is a complex form of photography. Works are created with long exposures (usually on bulb), anywhere from one minute to over an hour. While the camera is fixed on a tripod and the shutter is open, you are free to walk through the photograph and paint with light. Unless you stand in front of a light source long enough you are virtually invisible. It’s a weird feeling to know that you are invisible, almost ghost or god like. When I do this I like to think of it as if I am actually in the photograph, like entering Narnia or something.
