Lately it’s really hip to play around with light and long exposure, because admit it: it’s awesome and fun! Now photographer Denis Smith from Australia has taken this kind of photography to a whole new level. What he does is to use long exposure on his camera and a flash light or another kind of light source to create a glowing ball.
After the big sucess of a glowing club in Berlin, another one with the same concept has opened in Barcelona, Spain. Kubik Barcelona is a temporary mobile open-air nightclub that consists of dozens of illuminated water tanks.
For light painting you need a digital camera with long exposure and 5 different types of light sources such as flashlights, light toys, torch, LED’s. Now you need to find a darkened room and partner to take the pictures. Now set your camera in such a way that it can take long exposure pictures, most digital cameras are capable of taking 8 seconds or longer exposure. This process is called “shutter priority” or “bulb setting”.
