Painting with Light

I’ve “painted with light before”.. turning the lights off, sitting in the darkness with a flashlight, and literally “painting” something onto the film… because if it were completely dark, there would be nothing on the film (or sensor), correct? Just a plain, single-tone color.

Now what happens if you modify a flashlight, hang it from the ceiling and let it do its own thing?


The exposures were usually around 2 minutes or so, and the varying patterns were achieved by swinging the flashlight in different directions (though once you start it swinging, you can’t change the direction).

Lauren - wow! that’s so amazing how you can make them in such perfectly set lines. super awesome photographs. 😀

Kat - WOW. blown away. loveloveLOVE the patterns!!!! <3
