Light Painting - Long Exposure Photography

Light Painting

Light Painting. Art. Photography. Performance. Expression.

I'm a light artist, a photographer who shoots in the dark. Using various Light Painting techniques I create images by manipulating light during a long exposure. By moving light sources and selectively illuminaing parts of a scene while the shutter is open for extended periods of time, the image is built up in the camera sensor.

Darkness is my canvas. Light is my paint.
