Light painting is a fairly simple thing to do. With some decent equipment, set the camera to a long exposure, place your camera on a steady tripod, and then “paint” with your selected light source within the frame of the picture. Sounds simple enough right? It’s fun when you get it right, but how can you push your light painting skills to the next level?
How can you go from this (this took over 30 tries for me)…
