{ follow the dancing light }

Light painting — a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera.

With a little practice, you can make yourself look like a super hero, hah!

I think this video captures the effort required to do something like this.  It takes a lot of practice and precision to make the same movements over and over again with a glowstick/flashlight since you don’t know what the image being “drawn” actually looks like until you see it on camera:

It takes 3 people alone just to make a smiley face, doesn’t it?

I can’t even imagine how long it took them to perfect the walking dog.  Stop-motion videos are hard enough to make as it is, but to do it with light?  It’s insane!
