More than one way to use a photo {Meaghan Cook - Geelong Wedding Photographer}

Thought you might like to see this. It's Kaki King's music video for her song Pull Me Out Alive. 

Watch it, then I'll tell you about it ... 

What they said about it: The video was made without film cameras -- it consists of over 5,000 still photographs shot on Nikon D30s. There are no special effects; all of the light trails were created by hand, with up to eight individual "light animators" flashing LEDs and flashlights on and off over a long (8 second) shot exposure. The video was shot in NYC over five very cold, 16 hour days in January. 

The moving light is known as 'painting with light'. In a dark setting, (at night for example), the camera is set to a long exposure (8 secs per say) 
and while the shutter is open you literally use a light source (such as a torch) to paint the air. What results are those long streams of light seen in the video.

This is also an impressive way to combine stop motion with light painting (it's a commercial, and no, I'm not on board with Sprint).

The possibilities are endless. Might pop outside tonight and see what I can do with a torch and a camera.
