Ah, light painting. Thanks to digital photography, light painting has never been easier to get the kind of effects you are looking for. Lock that shutter open, mess around with your flashlight, check the results on the screen. Didn’t work? Adjust and repeat. Lovely!
But maybe you want more than just lovely. Maybe you want color! That’s where gels come in. Next time you are in a photo store or making an order from an online shop, pick up a pack of the Lee or Rosco sample gels. You’ll have access to every color in the rainbow, even “Cosmetic Silver Rose.” Did you even know that color was in the rainbow? I didn’t.
