Night Photography Tips

Great night photography and painting with light shooting tips by Andy Heatwole


“Place your camera on a tripod and start the exposure. With the shutter open, move your flashlight in broad sweeping motions across the scene. You can try to paint the entire scene or use the flashlight to highlight certain elements. The amount of time required to illuminate a particular scene or element depends on the strength of the light and the effect desired.

This is where experimentation comes in to play. Light painting is my favorite form of night photography because you never really know what you’re going to get.”
