Lately, I’ve been trying light painting photography. This type of photography entails going out at night or using a dark studio room, setting up the camera on tripod and shooting long exposures while “painting” the subject with a light. I started off small, but this week I light painted a whole car!

The first step was to find a location that was large enough and dark enough. I found an open car park of a vacant factory. After positioning the car, I photographed with exposures of 15-25 seconds while I lighted different panels of the car.

The whole process took about an hour and a half.

Then, I put all the photos together in Photoshop and masked the various parts together into one image.

This is the result. I hope you like it.

I would also like to thank Alex Megremis who has kindly been mentoring me with automotive light painting. He is a Master at this type of photography and I greatly appreciate his help.
