Missed the "What is color" contest? Don't worry, this new one might be just as much colourful!
First thing first, WHAT is light painting?!?! As explained by Pizzachu and Booky in the announcement video, light painting is a photography technique that uses long exposure to create trails of light. With a little bit of practice you can make it look like whatever you want, thus the name light painting! Still not very clear? Don't worry, you can watch the contest's announcement (link below) for more details and tutorials to show you how to do this. Otherwise, keep an eye open for our very own tutorial that will be posted Tuesday in our Tutorials section!
You have until next Sunday, February 1st to participate. Winners will be announced on February 6th. Don't forget to hashtag your creations with #LightPaintingContest to participate! If your final project is a photograph (hint: it can be something else!!!), you can also submit it for the Make Trick Photography challenge under the Photographer skill. Now how about a few inspirational projects to get you started?
