- Term: Painting With Light
Description: Painting with light, also known as Light Painting, is a lighting technique involving a long exposure and a handheld continuous light source or sources. To paint with light, mount a camera on a tripod in an environment that’s dark enough to use a long exposure without blowing out and move your handheld light source around the image to selectively illuminate parts of it. Multiple passes over the same place will result in a brighter exposure on that area, similarly to painting with a low flow or lowered opacity in Photoshop.
