Ontario-based photographer Stephen Orlando is fascinated with human movement and uses programmable LED sticks attached to kayak paddles, people, racquets, and other objects to translate that movement into photographic light paintings.
Light Painter Janne Parviainencomes from Helsinki, Finnland, also known as JANNEPAINT, is a full time artist who has been snapping photographs for over fifteen years.
Like many light painters his discovery of the medium was an accident. In early 2007, Janne was out at night capturing long exposure photographs and accidentally bumped his camera, when he looked at his photograph the street lights had left streaks that appeared to be writing in the image; from that point on Janne was a Light Painter.
Janne is well known for his light painting figures and recently he has been producing some amazing skeleton imagery. His favorite things about light painting are the urban exploration and the constant source of inspiration that it provides him. For more of his photos visit 500px.
Today the Department of Luminous Light Painting is enjoying these dreamy photos taken by Ontario-based photographer Stephen Orlando, who uses programmable LED light sticks attached to canoes and kayak paddles and actual people to capture these beautiful long exposure photos of the motions they generate while canoeing, kayaking and swimming. These photos are particularly lovely because Orlando hasn’t just captured the movement of his subjects, but also the reflections of the lights in the surrounding water.
I tried light drawing today for an assignment for drawing class… I spent hours on the balcony that we’re forbidden to go on trying to draw simple deep sea creatures with a camera and a flashlight. Man. It’s so much harder than it looks??!? Here are two that came out ok.
This was one of the few nights that I stayed at a campground on my east coast adventure, and I couldn’t resist doing a little light painting amongst the trees at the Chignecto North Campground in Fundy National Park, New Brunswick. I think this is the first time I used my multi-coloured light that I found on sale at Canadian Tire when I was waiting for my new tires. A good score!
