Light Painting Reading Assignments

This week we will be again experimenting with our cameras but this time we will paint with light. If you think about it, what we photograph when we take picture is light. Without light there would be nothing to photograph. What we will control this week the light that surrounds our object we photograph?
Using your camera, a tripod, different exposure settings and flashlight (or any light source) can you paint with light like the artists below?
Details below

Take a look at some of the amazing images of these light painting artists and then the video below the images. What will you create this week?

The size of the circle represents the size of the lens aperture – the larger the f-number, the smaller the aperture. Smaller number meas smaller depth of field but larger opening Check out this postexternal image Aperture-f-Number.png

The difference is clear – the image on the right hand side at ISO 3200 has a lot more noise in it, than the one on the left at ISO 200.Check out this article
