Light Painted Cars – Flickr Group

Light Painted Cars is a Flickr group dedicated to as the name suggests the art of Light Painting Cars, while I have never done it myself the process involves using a handled or continuous light source over the car at slower that normal shutter speeds basically. Enjoy this collection and be sure to check out the group on Flickr.

UPDATE: Andrew Whyte the admin of the group posted a great tutorial on Light Painting check it out his blog Long Exposure

About Light-painted cars

We’re looking for your shots of static vehicles at night or in the dark where you’ve used handheld light source(es) to illuminate your subject. Vehicles lit through coloured gels are cool too, though we’ll reject any shots of scrapyard/ abandoned cars.

If you’re using speedlights/ strobes/ flashguns that’s fine, you’ll have to judge as to whether the shot is staged lighting or lightpainting. For staged lighting you might find the car strobist or automotive lighting groups more appropriate.

We’re not looking for shots of traffic trails or light streaks while driving- check out the Cars at Night group for these.

If you can find time to add some description about your lighting techniques and light sources, I’m sure it’ll be appreciated as the group expands.

Author: : "TECHNOLOGY THE MEDIUM CREATIVITY THE SOURCE" I am first CREATIVE, my medium of choice is TECHNOLOGY. As a young artist one of my most important lessons was that design must FUNCTION. Purpose must supercede aesthetics; it is the foundation of good DESIGN. IF IT IS CREATIVE I AM IN.
