THE LIGHT PAINTING TECHNIQUE
With the camera set to a long exposure (in a very dark room) you use a single light source, to “paint” the subject or scene with the light. You can emphasize the portions of the scene you want to bring out, leaving in shadow those you want subdued. This style of still life photography often resembles the paintings of the Dutch Masters.
