I have seen a number on threads on the Web recently about painting with light. I find the concept to be rather ambiguous. One can "paint with light" in lots of ways.
I added a Learning Gallery to my site that demonstrates how to apply a low key lighting effect that leaves the image looking like a photograph rather than like a painting.
If there's interest, I'll add more Learning Galleries that explore other ways to "paint with light." The idea of "painting with light" has applicability to more than just low key images. http://www.thelightsrightstudio.com/...tingEffect.htm
