Light Painting, like macro photography, can be a fun way to enjoy photography without having to conform to the needs of a client (unless of course you have been hired to shoot macro or light painting). Well, you can now let your creative juices flow easier than ever with the help of Light Painting Brushes.


Using the Light Painting Brushes Universal Connector, you can take almost any flashlight and turn it into a light painting device capable of using different “brushes” for some really cool effects. You see, it’s all part of a system that allows you to access a vast array of light painting brushes produced by the team at LPB, or make your own using standard water or soda bottles.

The video below explains how the Universal Connector, sold for $20, makes lightpainting a breeze.

Now sure, could this be done with some duct tape and a little work, but for $20, it’s not as if the Universal Connector is expensive. The ability to use it to turn any standard water bottle or soda bottle into a light painting brush is pretty cool. The ability to “upgrade” and use some of their professionally made “brushes” along with virtually any flashlight is a great convenience.

I have never really done any light painting myself, but I may just pick one of these up and give it a shot. It looks like it could be a fun way to enjoy photography on my free time.
