When you look for light painting on Abduzeedo you find a lot of different posts from inspiration posts to tutorials. But luckily the world is full of awesome photographers. Today im presenting you three artists who deal very different with the special photographing technique.
Eric StallerEric Staller is an US-American artist and inventor. After studying architecture in New York, he stayed and showcased his projects in galeries & museums and is doing light sculpures & installations since then. In 1980 he created a "Lightmobile" a - with 1.659 computerised bulbs - VW Beetle. To not let the good things end he moved to Amsterdam in 1994 and invented the Conference Bike.

Justin Martinez is a rather younger, but not less interesting artists. You may have seen some ideas before except his photography incorporates portraits with light painting."Most people don't believe me when I tell them that these photos were not manipulated with Photoshop or any other post-processing software what-so-ever,"
A native of Georgia, USA, Justin began taking pictures as an editorial photographer for a local newspaper, in high school and continued to develop as a photographer while co-editing the Gordon College student newspaper, where he studied English.
More recently, his creativity has focused on long exposure/light painting photography, which has gained him much acclaim. With a tool bag full of bright lights and glowing gadgets, Justin creates all the "special effects" in his pictures in real time while the photograph is being captured, using flashlights like paintbrushes.
Currently, Justin works as a parachute packer for Skydive Atlanta, and a freelance photographer in the Atlanta area taking commercial and promotional photos for various companies and artists.
