Light painting

Open Rating Results

Light painting photography is a technique where lights are used to 'paint' or draw a scene while the camera's shutter is left open during a long exposure photo. The colourful trails of light can be caught without the need for any post production, but the effects can be just as impressive as anything technology can create. There is skill to light painting, so be sure to do your research before getting started.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
