  3. The way these images were made was with light painting by slow shutter speed.

    These images are different as they use numerous different colors to paint the picture they are trying to create. They are also on somewhat of a larger scale.

    One way you could incorporate light painting into photography with a subject is painting something around them or on them.

    One place I could do light painting is in Downtown Portland. That’s like a second home to me, and all the interesting people and places you could see down there would be pretty amazing.

  5. I think that the photographers that took these photos used light painting but in a different way I think. I think that they had to use special lighting for the photos that they took and they also could have edited them in a different way in Photoshop or another site. If I were to take photos like these I would have to use some kind of special device for the different color of light. I think that I would have to take the light photos during the night time in order to make them look more better.

  11. The images was made by light. It’s different from slow shutter because were slowing down enough to capture the light and not get a ghosted image. Use the time value and slow the image down so you can capture the light paing/ writing with the subject. Make sure it’s dark so the light image will stand out in the picture and make it to where it will capture the viewers eyes.

  13. Every single image taken are made from some type of light, and the amount of light allowed to come in within the camera. The images are different from other slow shutter speed photos by the complexity within the image and the light the taker and or the drawer in this sense. Allow the tome to be later in the day so you have the darkness to capture the light, as well as the fact that you need to make a unique shapes and writing styles to capture the eyes of the viewer.

  15. These images were made by using light painting. These images have actual Arabic writing in them which is what makes them different from slow shutter speed images that I have seen before. I could incorporate light painting and writing by writing a word in the light that has something to do with the subject of my photo. I could do these light painting images in the woods.
