Light paintings, also known as light drawing or light graffiti, is a photography technique in which exposures are usually made at night or in a darkened room. The images we are featuring here are from Jan Wöllert and Jörg Miedza, the guys behind LAPP-PRO
. The light art performance photography (briefly LAPP) is a one-shot, long time bulb exposure photography, performed additionally with movement of light. LAPP originates on a real-time basis directly in front of the camera, created between opening and closing the shutter.
The work from Jan Wöllert and Jörg Miedza was suggested by one of our readers, longo, who mentioned these guys and asked us for a post about them. As they have some really amazing photos, we made this selection to show you here. Long exposure photography involving light effects are really awesome. We also featured a post about it a while ago, Awesome Light Graffiti Pictures
, and here we are again showing nice 'light paintings' to inspire you! In writing this post, I remembered the statement, "In photography, it's all about light." I would say that it all depends on the effect that you want to produce - the correct light, the right amount of light, extra light, 'moving' light and maybe no light! Personally, I really liked LAPP-PRO's photos. They are pure art! And thanks to longo for the great suggestion! Enjoy. :)
