With the advances of cameras in mobiles, it allows anyone on the go, to try out light painting.’ Click through / scroll down for a helpful video giving hints about how to light paint with a Nokia Lumia 1020.

Nokia Press Release

EXCLUSIVE NOKIA LUMIA IMAGING TECHNOLOGY BRINGS LIGHT PAINTING TO SMARTPHONES AND THE MASSES

4 second shutter delay and advance low light capabilities on Nokia Lumia 1020 opens up light painting to photographers on the move

The evolution of digital photography has driven a fresh rise in the art of light painting, with the tools to capture and share these unique images becoming increasingly accessible. That goes one step further today with the latest work from leading light artists Ian Hobson of Newcastle, UK and Jeremy Jackson from Virginia, USA demonstrating how people can make stunning light art using a Nokia Lumia smartphone.

Armed with a Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone, the artists have created a series of images and guide which are intended to inspire a new generation of smartphone light painters. All made possible by the exclusive 4 second shutter delay and superior low light photography capabilities of the Nokia Lumia smartphone cameras with PureView technology.

Ian, who builds his own LED instruments to create images, says: “light painting can be difficult for some even with 30 seconds, so the fact anyone can now produce quality photos during a 4 second shutter speed on a smartphone is great for the art of light painting.  He continued, ‘The Nokia Lumia 1020 is the first smartphone I’ve ever seen that has the capability to capture quality light paintings due to its 4 second shutter speed and its 41mp camera. With the advances of cameras in mobiles, it allows anyone on the go, to try out light painting.’

The surreal and beautiful compositions of luminous and vibrant graffiti have an added dimension with instant upload to social networks like Instagram and Facebook on the move with Nokia Lumia smartphones. Jeremy, who trialled the Nokia Lumia to create wool spins around pictured projections for the Nokia Instagram says: “The 1020 is the best camera phone on the market.  It performs excellently in low light and gives you more control over the camera than any other phone.”

Nokia followed Ian Hobson on a night of capturing light painting photos using a Nokia 1020, giving helpful hints in this video about how to light paint. The video can be seen here.

Tips on creating light paintings using your Nokia Lumia smartphones:

·         Set the Nokia Lumia on a steady surface or tripod

·         Access the camera control panel by swiping the camera icon left for adjustable settings

·         Set the ISO at a low level – 100 - 200

·         Set the shutter speed to 4seconds

·         Set the white balance to the setting with the light bulb

·         Set focus to infinite

·         Set the self timer to 10 seconds

·         Experiment with different light sources for stunning effects

·         To make the most of the 4seconds, get your friends to join in to create more light trails in a single shot.

Editing: Nokia Creative Studio or Instagram lets users crop and rotate as well as adjust brightness
