One way to make unforgettable photos is with a technique called light painting. It includes moving a hand-held light around the frame. The light appears to be a thread of lighting that swims throughout the artwork when photographed with a long exposure. Although a flashlight is a typical instrument for light painting, steel wool generates an even more striking image.
The way a light source, whether artificial or natural, illuminates the scene or subject being taken is referred to as photographic lighting. Photographers can change the position and quality of a light source to generate visual effects.
Light may be utilised to generate effects like low-key and high-key.The brain analyses the 2D pattern of contrast created by lighting to distinguish 3D objects in photos. When looking at a photograph, the brain seeks to connect the contrast and colour patterns it perceives to previous sensory memories.
It is one of the fun and creative ways you can use long exposure.A star trail is a photograph that employs long exposure periods to depict diurnal circles, or the apparent motion of stars in the night sky caused by the Earth’s rotation.
