Troy Paiva first got me interested in night light painting seven years ago. One of the most prolific light painters who credit Troy as an influence is Larrie Thomson of Canada. Today, I came across the following magazine article by Seam McCormick, who credits Larrie Thomson not only for his inspiration, but for actually taking him along on a night shooting trip and showing him how to do it (he also thanks Troy in the article for creating this niche artform).

If you've never tried light painting at night, this article will be especially helpful because Sean explains exactly how many flashes he fired at each point in the subject (note: the article describes how he photographed an old truck and an old building, not the bridge ab0ve).
