Learning How To Light Paint


by Matt Moreman September 14, 2018

I was messing around with my Fenix flashlight learning how to light paint.  It is better to use a stick light, but I don’t have one.  It’s amazing how easy it is.

 

 

1.) Set the camera to 20 second exposure

2.) Walk around with a flashlight pretending to paint the area with light (It doesn’t matter if you walk in front of the camera).

3.)  Check out your photo and adjust Aperture and ISO.They look very fake/HDRish but pretty cool.

 

 

 

They look rather fake and HDRish, but it helps with the shadows on the back of the cars.  Although these are certainly not professional grade, I think it make me look like I know what I’m doing.  I did my normal basic editing in LightRoom.

 

 

And a few extras I shot with the lights on.
