My main goal is to use light painting to tell a story. I want to do light paintings with different materials and light source.
First is using small light source like a flashlight to do the drawing. many artists use flashlight because it is easy to control the drawing come out clean and neat.
Another way to do light painting is to use long light source like a light stick. Light stick is not easy to draw, thus it will focus on creating a beautiful background.
Firework is another popular way. Firework is easy to draw with, but it won’t give you a single line.
Using Steel wool is also doable. Creating work using steel wool need a large empty space. The materials are pretty cheap: all you need is some steel wool, and a rope or cable. Simply place the steel wool inside the whisk, light it on fire using a lighter, and swing it around at the end of the cable while your camera snaps a long-exposure photo.
