Painting with light is a photography technique where a hand-held light source is used to illuminate specific areas within your picture. You can also create your own “drawing” with the light. It’s one of my favorite techniques. The results can be very impressive.

I’d never heard of light painting artist Darren Pearson until I came across this article on PetaPixel. I checked out Darren’s site and I have to say his light paintings are incredible. What’s really got everyone’s attention is the incredible light painting stop motion video he released a few days ago. It really does speak for itself so check it out below.
