I found this in my blog archive from last year but thought it worthy of a second posting.
This is Light Painting by Ben Willmore. To create light paintings, Ben takes photographs in the dark with long exposures and paints the light in where he wants it. It’s a beautiful effect.
You can learn how he does it at CreativeLive. CreativeLive do brilliant free online classes in creative and business skills. They are based in Seattle and San Francisco and if you can watch the webinars live, they’re free. However, if you want to download the videos to watch at your leisure, you can buy them at a very reasonable price considering the knowledge and expertise shared.
Ben can also be found at DigitalMastery.com.
