New App Helps Users Create Lighting Painting Effect in Their Images
A new free app called Pablo has hit iTunes. It takes images and videos that use lights and creates the streaking look of the long exposure photography technique commonly known as "painting with light".
Traditional lighting painting has a bit of a learning curve and involves long exposures, at night or in low light, and advanced knowledge of your camera and lens. You really need to understand correct settings and timing to make the technique effective.
While I don't think the results from this app will come close to the creative freedom the traditional technique offers, it's still fun. Only catch, you have to be willing to share your photos as the app involves being part of a photo sharing community.
Check out the promo video above and if you're interested in trying it you can download it for free HERE.
