Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article presents LightPainter, an interactive tool that promotes creative long-exposure photography through an intuitive drawing metaphor and flexible spatiotemporal mapping from videos to composite images. We discuss the power of software-defined exposure and the tools capability to facilitate creating sophisticated long-exposure effects in challenging scenarios.
