This was my first attempt at painting with light, so be kind :oops:

This is a single shot in my pitch black garage, painting the light with my phone. I had to darken the background in post way more than I wanted to due to some clutter, but three bikes, a trailer, and a car in a two car garage tends to do that. I would be interested in anyone’s tips and tricks, or links to useful videos or articles, as I found this quite fun.

I see you are using the 6D2, the "Canon Connect" app and WIFI is a great resource for light painting. Make sure you use a tripod. Any camera movement will effect stacking images accurately. If the exposure is long enough you are able to walk in front of the camera without being seen.
I would say 4-ish second exposure for a bike is good. You will probably use 3-5 photos for the finished product. Using masks in Photoshop will "reveal" the desired areas.
Hope this helps..

Thanks for the response. That’s actually exactly what I did, but I set the shutter to 30s and painted the whole bike in one exposure. I’ll practice with taking multiple shots next time.

Sydney skyline light painted itself while walking blissfully unaware with the camera set to a long exposure and unintentionally pressed the shutter on phone :)

Thank you. I used a clear glass sphere placed on black acrylic. The lines come from an LED Light strip glued to a 4 foot section of PVC pipe spray painted black. After beginning the exposure, I slowly moved the LED lights from left to right. And voila, the final result.
