George Eastman said, "Light makes photography. Embrace Light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light.  Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography."  Regardless of the type of photography you do, light painting will help you improve your ability to see and understand light.  Besides, it is just plain fun!
