Light painting workshop in Hesperia Park. It was freaking amazing and creative. And it was FREE OF CHARGE! How I just loooooove Helsinki!
For you who might not know
Light painting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera. For this kind of technique, you would need a flashgun to freeze the subject and a hand-held source of light, i.e lighter, matches, glow sticks, etc…
The camera shutter speed should also be set accordingly to the time you do the light painting. I am not sure about Canon and others, but for Nikon users, for shutter speed longer than 30s, there is this feature “BULB” and the camera would take exposure for as long as the shutter is pressed. In this case, a remote transmitter-receiver would be useful :)
And a tripod is a MUST! =)
