    Light painting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by
    moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera. The term light
    painting also encompasses images lit from outside the frame with hand-held
    light sources. Light Painting Photography can be traced back to the year
    1914 when Frank Gilbreth, along with his wife Lillian Moller Gilbreth, used
    small lights and the open shutter of a camera to track the motion of
    manufacturing and clerical workers. Man Ray, in his 1935 series “Space
    Writing,” was the first known art photographer to use the technique.

    Nice video. Maybe not that perfect in sound quality but you get to the
    point, and that’s what matters. I would only add a tip: if the “painter” is
    not a subject in the picture, he should wear dark clothes, so the light
    won’t bounce off from it to the camera and be noticeable in the final
    picture, at least not that much when that painter stays still for a few
    moments and the camera catches this.
