While on a Professional Imaging/Comm 316 class photo excursion in Victor, Idaho with Caryn Esplin, I was able to try out many different forms of light painting. I was able to try out Dave Black, Caryn Esplin and Gregory Crewdon styles of light paintings outside the cabin we were staying in.

 For all of the above images, I was able to use Adobe Lightroom 4 to do minimal editing. I boosted some saturation and sharpened some areas of the photo as well as lightened some of peoples faces. All of the Gregory Crewdon light paintings had a exposure of about 10 seconds to about 15 seconds at the longest. I used a higher f/stop to have the images come out a little sharper.

With this following image, I was able to use a total of four images, 3 bracketed and one light painted image to make it into a light painted HDR composite.
