Light painting is a really cool trick you can use to add a bit of creativity to your image collection and, it's not an overly complicated technique to try either. 

All you're doing is combining the movement of light with a still subject and a long exposure to create interesting images that showcase an arty side. Any source of light can be used and you can even set yourself up at the side of the road where lights from cars turn into long streaks of colour through your shot. But, today's tutorial is all about 5 specific light painting photo hacks and they come from the creative COOPH team. 

As well as looking at traditional light painting methods, the COOPH team also use projectors and even a drone to create/capture their shots and examples of what they captured can be seen below.
