Light painting is a very unique approach to photography that uses a highly complex system of customized LED lights to capture subjects over multiple images using high resolution cameras that are positioned for the best vantage point.
Collections of family heirlooms that are passed down from loved ones, such as Bibles, military medals, guns, glasses, rings, guitars, wedding dresses and other sentimental memorabilia, can be light painted as well. No matter the subject, once printed on high definition metal, you'll have a stunning piece of artwork to share and have them fight over when you're dead.
See below for GB Modern PhotoArt's portfolio and VIDEOs showing the process.

Simply stunning. Absolute luxury with all the modern touches. This beautiful Rolls Royce was built by Nobody Customs in Keithville, Louisiana.

Camaro River Valley Cruisin'
Light Painting this beautiful red Camaro was a blast. As we photographed the car, in the background cars were testing each other and we was able to capture a few tail-light drags for the image.

Skyjacker's Dodge Rebel
This was the next light painting for Skyjacker, a Dodge Rebel that was amazing. The set for this light painting was a little more complex because we photographed the truck in the day, in a metal building. We had to get creative with covering gaps around garage doors and holes to prevent day light from coming in. But we got r done!FULL IMAGE SPECS:2.75 hrs on-site, 30 hrs editing approximately 94 mages and 98 layers to assemble.Printed on 10X20 metal.
The answers to your questions
What is light painting?
Light painting is a very unique approach to photography that uses a highly complex system of customized LED lights to capture subjects over multiple images using high resolution cameras that are positioned for the best vantage point. This results in images that are extremely color accurate, then merged/blended into a single portrait that brings attention to the subject in ways that are not possible in other types and techniques of photography.
While vehicles and structures make up the majority of subjects that are light painted, equally stunning images are produced using RVs, UTVs, Planes and commercial products. Recently added are collections of family heirlooms that are passed down from loved ones, such as Bibles, military medals, guns, glasses, rings, guitars, wedding dresses and other sentimental memorabilia.
No matter the subject, once printed on high definition metal, you'll have a stunning piece of artwork to share and have them fight over when you're dead.
How long does this take?
Photography is 3-4 hours. Editing is 20-40 hours.
So it takes about 3-4 weeks to have the metal image delivered to you.
How much does this cost?
On average, most sessions for 1 vehicle costs about $750 and you get a 10"X20" high definition glossy metal print.
