‘Light-painting’ is a photographic technique which uses a source of light to draw an image in the air whilst taking a long-exposure photograph. By capturing the light from a moving source, you're able to create an image which shows its motion over time. In the 1940's, photographer Gjon Mili attached lights to the boots of ice-skaters to demonstrate the movement of their bodies and they gracefully glide around the ice. This video demonstrates a recreation of those photographs, using modern photographic techniques. To find out how to make your own light-paintings, check out the video here & tweet any pictures you take to the At-Bristol Science Centre.

This is something I have been interested in, but I'm not seeing a link to the video mentioned.
<p>Hi JPenne, the video should be embedded <br>above, but since I'm still a newbie here on Instructables I apologise if<br> I've missed something. I'll add a hyperlink to the description of the <br>activity above, or you can watch the full video here: </p><p><br><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/CkvWzd4TKD8 " width="500"></iframe></p><p>Thanks, Ross.</p>
Excellent! Thanks for the quick response. I am really looking forward to seeing this.
<p>This looks amazing. </p>
<p>Thanks, Jason! We're just starting out on Instructables, so stay tuned for future makes from us and some of our past creations from our YouTube channel.</p>
