light grafitti

lately saw a report in TV about it and I was pretty fascinated about. Its about painting with light. With a long exposure time of the camera at night the movement looks like a light grafitti.

This Text is from a Blog called colourlovers , it is written by ruecian.

Painting with Light
A number of graffiti artists have been tagging everything thought to be impossible without being caught. Well — it’s actually not illegal for them. They’re not using paint. As it turns out, time-lapse photography isn’t just for blooming flowers, skyscapes, or brake lights anymore. Termed Light Graffiti, tag artists are taking their colour to an all new level.

Let There Be Light
Using an exposure of about ten-to-thirty seconds and a tripod for best results, Light Graffiti artists start at the first click. Glowsticks, flashlights, reflectors, and even torches have been used as mediums to create all sorts of designs and tags, as the artist becomes a ghost of a blur, if visible at all.

No Harm, No Foul

Any person, place, or thing can become a central piece of the art. Because all it really takes is less than a minute, light tagging phone booth can be just as easy as something in the privacy of home, though staying home is certainly less fun. Some ‘hardcore’ taggers are set on Light Graffiti not actually being graffiti because it doesn’t have a physical presence, but after seeing photos of it, it’s not too different from tagging a building and having it covered or removed the next day.



Theres a german team that do it professional even. Their name is Lichtfaktor.

Jaw, well, theoretically I do. But Im also limited with the posibiities my cam has. As its a snapshot too. There are be much more possibilities with a (D)SLR, but I dont have one. And the pic well you never know how the pic will look as you wont see anything as long as its exposing. So the result is always a surprise.
