Painting with Light at Night

In our Small Format class, we were assigned to use multiple pops of the flash to “paint” a scene at night with light. I went with some other students to a cool property in the country with lots of old vehicles and buildings, all sitting out in the dark. I decided to light up this old truck. The wonderful Courtney Satterfield channeled her inner James Dean and pop pop pop – this shot was created!

I also experimented with a similar method in the studio using flashlights. Here is an antique banjo painted with blue and orange colored flashlights in the dark.

  1. Eric, these are some really neat attempts at light painting, the one of the truck is very clean, nice job.
