    my dad and i were talking about product photography, and he told me of this technique he used sometimes. he says he set up his camera and subject in a completely dark room. he set his shutter speed to maybe 1-2 secs. while the picture was being taken, he "washed" the photo with a light source. he says it eliminated shadows. have you heard of this technique before? i'm going to give it a go sometime and post my results.

    It sounds like the technique sometimes called "painting with light." Google-images that phrase to get many creative examples.

    painting with light isn't really what i'm talking about. i talking about a subject in pitch black darkness. then you go over the subject with a continuous light to expose the subject, not create a creative subject

    I believe it's called light painting. If you search for this, it seems most cases you'll see are people drawing designs with an LED or similar small-point light with really long shutter speed, but you can find some very interesting scenes that have been painted with the technique you described. Particularly night landscape and city scape.

    There was a machine made for this a number of years ago, called the Hose Master. I
    consider this darkened room method to be light painting

    no. you have like a scene set up in a closet or other darkroom. then you take a lamp or something similar and go over every thing inside the frame of the picture. this will expose the shot. i'm not talking about writing words on a brick wall with a laser light.

    ugh...i give up. just close this thread.

    Going over objects so that they are exposed in dark conditions IS a form of light painting.
    That is you answer unless you can explain it differently.

    Writting words with a laser pen is not just what painting with light means.

    LOL!!!!!

    you ask people a question then you get upset because they answers what it is?

    if there is no light source and then you open the shutter and use light to light up your subject. no matter if you use a flash light, or you light up the whole room with stobes, its a form of light painting.
