K, so i said I'll explain the light paintin concept in my last post so thats wat i'm abt to do. i really hope it’s useful to u guyz, enjoy.

Befor u begin, u'll need the followin; A DSLR Camera or any Camera which alows long exposures, a tripod is usually necessary due to the long exposure times involved or the camera may be placed on or braced against a table or other solid support. A shutter release cable, remote or self timer is needed in order to reduce camera shake and a light source, could b a flash light, led light, candle etc. Now to begin, u'll have to shoot at night or in a darkened room.

Step 1
Set up ur picture, the camera n tripod, light source in hand and be ready to paint wit the light source. The camera settins to be used are
• Shutter speed: As long as you need to create the scene.
• ISO: I usually put it on 100 so I can set the shutter speed on a very slow value and I don t get any noise on my photographs.
• Aperture: Set it doing a test shot without drawings, focusing on an element close to what you are going to draw.
• Focus: Obviously on manual as there is not enough light for auto focus to work
• Exposure Mode: full manual as it allows u to prolong the exposure as long as needed wen in bulb mode

Step 2
Begin the shot n the rest is up to u as Light painting is about light, creativity and fun! Keep tryin different things n u’ll get better wit each try. Enjoy

Tip: wear dark clothes to lower the chance of being visible on the photograph.
