Every other n00b photog can figure out how to do light painting, but this video of a dude running around the city with a light bulb is very cutting edge.

Looks like nothing special at first. Just a few stop motion tricks here and there — with some hefty post, you’ve got visual gold anyone can do, right? Think again. It’s all live action — no stop motion, no still photos, and only a little bit of post touch-up.

We’ve had a video hustle and think they’re using two cameras with varying exposures, strategically placed on top of each other. But we’re just speculating. Regardless of what the trick behind the lens is, it makes our eyeballs happy.
