Light painting is about using the long exposure mode to capture trails of light and create a ‘painting’ with these streaks, treated as brushstrokes. You can write, draw or do whatever you want! If you are tired of using a torch or flashlight from a mobile phone to draw, we’ve got a substitute!

Why don’t we consider to drawing with our body parts? A London-based photographer and graphic designer, Amandine Alessandra, has created an Alphabet series with long exposure photographs and the continuous motion of her subject’s arms.

Alessandra also makes use of apparel to highlight several body parts, so as to create an alphabet set with special visual effects! With different body movements, each letter is created.

Does this inspire you? Other than arms, fingers and legs can also be parts of the elements in your creative range! Let’s take the our Lomographers’ works as an example!

When you have no ideas of where to get inspiration, perhaps you can start with the most ordinary things, such as your body! It may give you unexpected results!
