You might be asking yourself what editing program did he use to make that image on the computer? None. Darren Pearson, who’s nickname is Darius Twin, decided to get creative and free-handed that cool looking image using, wait for it; mini flashlights!  How?! Here’s how: He draws in the air with the flashlight in a dark or semi-dark setting, and sets his camera to a shutter speed that last several seconds.  Within those seconds,  the camera captures the light like a brushstroke on canvas. When the shutter closes, the final product is the image created by light. Note: The normal point-and-shoot cameras won’t work when trying to create that effect due the speed of the lens.

Still scratching your head?
