Friday Fun: Light Graffiti

I was blown away when I came across these light paintings yesterday on Reddit. The concept is pretty simple: take long exposure photos of people moving lights around. It sounds simple enough, but with the right skill intricate drawings can emerge.

Light painting has been around for a long time and has been done by more artists than you would expect. Below, a light painting done by Picasso in 1924.

The man behind the work, LICHTFAKTOR, can be found on myspace. You can check out all of his photos in this flickr slideshow. To learn how they did it you can check out their equipment and watch a video of their light painting in action.
