Drawing With Light – A Very Cool Night Photo Technique

Drawing with light was the final activity of the night photography workshop I took last week.  After learning how to capture the shot, our instructors did the drawing:

Drawing with lightThey sure made it look easy.  Here’s what we learned:

  • With the long exposure, we can set up the tripod shot and then be in it.
  • It’s not easy, but it is fun!

We got into groups of three and here are our “student” photos:

      Mark (instructor) did the drawing on that one. I am sure he has had lots of practice. The hard part is remembering where your lines are, as you don’t see a “drawing” until the photo is complete.
