Proposal Done Through Light Painting

Derick Childress spent three nights shooting a massive light painting photograph with the message “Emily, will you marry me?” drawn out on the streets of Raleigh, North Carolina as a proposal to his girlfriend Emily Kern. The final image was made up of about 800 individual stills that each took 10 seconds to expose.

There’s more behind-the-scenes information on this “making of” page.
