Light photography has had something of a resurgence recently and ever more photographers are dedicating their attention to painting with light. Light painting or light graffiti involves taking photos in the dark or in low light by delaying the shutter speed of the camera and filling the frame with designs created by light.
The effect can be used to created designs or text in the air or on a wall or even around a subject Light photography can also be used if you wish to light up a subject in a unique or unorthodox manner, creating sharp shadows at odd angles or even lighting your subject differently when you cannot change or move the natural light. Artist Janne Parviainen is a perfect example of someone who creates highly detailed pieces of art using light, including these awesome skeletons.
