Have you always wondered how light painted images are created?
Light painting, painting with light, light drawing, or light art performance photography are terms that describe photographic techniques of moving a light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or space, or to shine light at the camera to ‘draw’, or by moving the camera itself during exposure of light sources. Practiced since the 1880s, the technique is used for both scientific and artistic purposes, as well as in commercial photography.
The Colorado Street Bridge is a historic Beaux Arts bridge that spreads over Pasadena. The bridge was built across the Arroyo Seco (seasonal river) to ease travel between Pasadena and Los Angeles. Today it offers visitors picturesque views of the city and is featured in several television shows and movies. Most recently the Colorado Street Bridge was featured in the 2016 Oscar nominated film “LA LA Land.”
