Photography itself is called “painting with light”, and light painting is done by using a camera that can take long exposures and manipulating artificial light sources to produce lines, shapes, hues, and other interesting effects resulting in impressive images. Marc Bower- Briggs has been practicing light painting for over four years using a number of different tools such as LED lamps, coloured lights, and lasers among many other things.
