Photography podcast #82 discusses painting with light AKA light painting with master light painterPatrick Rochon. In a nutshell, light painting is (usually) the art of using portable lights like flashlights to ‘paint’ a subject in a dark environment while the shutter stays open on a tripod during a long exposure. In this podcast Patrick describes and shares some of the tips and tricks he uses to create his amazing light painted portraits. The majority of Patrick’s body of work, like the image below is non-digital, was shot on film, and has not been Photoshopped.
