Light painting is done by making a long exposure and while moving a light source, which can be done beautifully with fire, and can be used to write words, as seen below. For this session, 13% SALT joined Scott Stringham and Friday Night Fotogs on a trip to the ruins of the original Saltair Pavilion at the Great Salt Lake.
*The second picture required three people. I spelled out 13% SALT with an LED light (backwards, which is rather difficult), while Scholes ran through the pillars with a shaft of light that changed color, and Stringham danced a red string of light to create the fire effect on the foreground. Here are the specs: 181sec, f/5.6, ISO 100, 32mm.
