Light Graffiti

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

These light graffiti photos were made using a digital camera, an iPhone torch, and a small flashlight. To capture the trails of light I needed a longer exposure, so I changed the shutter speed on the camera to 2 minutes for each one.

These were quick experiments but you could try using lots of different coloured lights and types of torches to create your own light graffiti. My top tips are to ensure the place you’re working in is quite dark (this creates more contrast for the light painting to stand out) and to use the Bulb mode on your camera to ensure you are on the slowest shutter speed possible. This will allow you more time to get creative with your designs!
