Incredible Light Painting Product Shots Lit Using Only an iPad and an iPhone

This is just awesome: professional-looking product photography done using nothing more than a tripod, an iPad, an iPhone and your camera of choice. Given the extremely affordable nature of the process, the results are downright epic.

The project was undertaken by photographer Laya Gerlock, who shared his work through the folks at DIYPhotography. Basically, one night, he came up with a simple challenge for himself: light paint using only the iGadgets he had on hand.

Head over to DIY Photography for the full breakdown of how you can do this yourself, as well some sample shots that show the impressive final product!
