Light Painting

wiki def: also known as light drawing is a photographic technique in which exposures are made usually at night or in a darkened room by moving a light source or by moving the camera.

These are extremely talented photographers, who use dynamic electric light patterns to enhance the nature’s given landscapes, or our bleak industrial environments. In every case something luminous and strangely mesmerizing is brought “to light”, transforming the photograph into an entirely different experience, and making our hearts beat faster.

It all started with Eric Staller: a sculptor more known for the permanent artwork in public places, but also for his experimentation with light. His light drawings and sculptures date as far back as the late 70s (definitely in-line with the disco-era sensibilities). He was perhaps the first photographer to paint light into live urban environment:
