This photo is part of a series of light paintings where I paint with natural light. Handheld long exposures reveal organic patterns of light and color unseen by the naked eye.

Most light painting photographers choose a flashlight, but since I began working in the medium of photography I felt it was more natural to use the camera as the paintbrush. Kinetic light painting usually consists of perfect geometric form, but I prefer the somewhat incidental nature of quick, gestural movements with the camera. 1-6 second exposures either at night or in properly lit daylight yield extraordinary visions of nature.

I invite you to take a look at my kinetic light paintings, you may find some interesting work. I will be uploading 1-2 a day on 500px for the next month. Find all my light paintings in my set on 500px.
