Painting With Light

Before you read ahead, take a few seconds to study the photo.

Do you know what you're looking at?

Well yes, of course it's an image of a city street, with the tops of the Cleveland skyline peaking above the Lorain-Carnegie bridge. And of course I digitally (and poorly) copy-and-pasted a photo of some graffiti onto the billboard in the image.

Or did I?

You are looking at one of the most recently-created forms of light painting, where, in this case, I utilized a six-foot-tall, fully programmable, LED-based light bar, combined with a long-exposure, to capture a whole new style of light painting photography.

I will have more thorough information on the hand-built light bar one of these days, but for now, check out how it's creator, Jake, used it to visually incorporate sound into his photographs.
