I've always found light painting to be difficult to photograph when with a larger group of people. The main reason being that everyone's shots tend to come out looking similar. Light painting is typically focused on the awe-inspiring end result that develops from some sort of light source being paired with a shutter's long-exposure. There are unfortunately not too many variables that can be applied while still getting a successful shot.
Last week after a brief stop at the always-delicious Lincoln Park Pub for Taco Tuesday, Jake, Jeff, Brandon, and I set out to snap a few pictures in the bitter cold.
I decided to take on a slightly different approach in order to capture a more "behind-the-scenes" sort of look.
(The location was decided upon.)

You can see how Brandon's shot turned out here. Happy shooting, and stay warm.
