Early practitioners of 'light painting' began rudimentary experiments around 1889 by tracing human motion, but modern digital photography has converted this discipline into a recognised art form that is enthusiastically practiced around the globe.

Many artists produce giant outdoor works using flames and ignited steel wool, but then there are those (like myself) who prefer a more confined studio set-up where the environment is controllable. 

Each one of these is a single, long-exposure photograph.

No tricks, no post-production manipulation & no 'apps' - promise.

If you use Instagram, then you might like to visit @lightpainting_creations where you'll see loads more examples.

Occasionally, I release a few for sale which make superb abstract art, mounted in 3D frames, or as prints.
