Challenges While taking Long Light Paintings:

These images were some of the most difficult pictures to capture. Light painting objects is tedious work. It takes me a lot time to get an image that I like. The faux bokeh was also very challenging for me. With practice and a lot of help from others, I was able to get some quality images that I would love to improve. I think they are good for first attempts. I am excited to expand my knowledge with them and how they can improve in the future. There are many techniques to taking light paintings. You have to have patience, which can be extremely difficult. You need to have a good light and a good camera. The room that you light paint in also needs to be dark, almost completely black. other lights can create problems for the images later on.

One person that does a wonderful job at light painting is Jason D. Paige. Here is a link to his blog: http://lightpaintingphotography.com/light-painting-photography/signs-of-light-by-eric-pare/
