What you'll do

What everybody can see are long exposure pictures that I’ve taken in several tourist spots, single aperture, no photoshop, isn’t it amazing? You can do it too. So what IS lightpainting? It is the technology to use camera’s long aperture, to record the trace of moving light, and also using creativity to draw pictures and shapes in 3D. With the development of technology, most mobile phones now support lightpainting too! I’ll take you to the magic land of light painting and we’ll be the cool kids!So now let’s begin the trip: Towards evening, we will go to the gathering point, drinks, tools and camera will be prepared. ( If there are too many people, I will bring my assistant too). For transport, we can either take tube or shared bike or taxi. First, what will we experience? 1. Portrait lightpainting. I will show you how to take portrait lightpainting, you will experience the whole process of lightpaiting, the design of lightpainting shapes, fixing lighting on portrait, just don’t be shy and use your imagination! 2. Creative light painting. Does it stop at just taking pictures of people? Big NO NO. There’s many ways to work it, the more kinds of techniques you use, the better. For instance, we can combine pure lightpainting with nature scenes. I will also teach you skills and ways that can be applied to lightpainting and elementary creative design. 3. Sharing experiences and stories. Who told you I’m a inexperienced boy with no story? :p If the difficulty of an artist is not shared, it will be real difficulties, but if the joy of art is shared, it will be real happiness. After 4 years of lightpainting, I’ve got lots of stories and revelations to tell. Secondly, about what you have to prepare: 1. If you want to be the model, then show your style! It will be your show tonight! 2. If you want to learn, then prepare your photographing gears(cameras, lenses etc), if you have done this before, then take your relevant tools,etc. 3. Bring your full energy and let’s start the night show! Lastly, what you have to note: 1. Do not wear slippers 2. Fully charge your phone 3.If you are taking your own camera, fully charge it and make sure you bring the memory card with you.

Hi, I’m JUNZAI, born in 1990, a light painting photographer. I’m one of the first lightpainters in China who initiated creating art with portrait under lightpainting, possibly the youngest. I was nominated in the 2017 FAPA for World Art Photography, Fashion category, also am a member of World Lightpainting Union LPWA. I started my journey of lightpainting 4 years ago, I have loved it till today and it changed my life. Up till now, I have worked with quite a few big brands in the world , including Huawei, Mercedes Benz, Audemars Piguet,Toyota Crown,etc. You can’t make it with just passion, you need to focus too. I used to be a designer and so I applied my skills into what I love and made some innovational lightpainting tools and lighting tools. Even though I have had hard times like needing to work in take aways, I’ve still never given up my art, my love for it has shine a light in my way forward. I am the boy who chases his light.
