When I was a kid I used to practice Ninja moves I saw in the movies. Needless to say that it did not make me a ninja (or made my sister happy). However, learning a technique by seeing how it’s done by a pro and understanding how it works can work very well for light painting.
Usually we see a finished light painting photograph and stand amazed at the creative use of different lights. If only we could see how the photograph was created so we can understand the underlying mechanisms. Photographer and light artists Vincent Bruno takes a 15 seconds time lapse BTS of every light painting that he does so you can learn and light paint like a true ninja. Here are a few samples.
