Kite Surfing Light Painting

One of the most active light painters and persons in general, Gunnar Heilmann, has been posting recently some photos from a project he did with Kite Surfing Light Painting. He actually got one of his photos from this as a magazine cover for KITE Magazin We asked him a couple of questions about this interesting project.   Congrats on the magazine cover Gunnar! Awesome work! I don’t think I’ve seen something like that done before!  Tell us a bit more about it. How did it start, where did that happen, who was involved, how long did you work on that?  ...

PHOTO OF THE WEEK 43 Our artist of the month October, Palateth went again through your submissions on Instagram with the #lightpaintingblog hashtag. His choice for the Photo of the week is this photo by Gareth Nathan.

His choice for the Photo of the week is by  Mafu Fuma of Aurora Movement. “I love it because it’s unusual and beautiful.

Infrared Light Painting – Modifying a D70 for infrared

Infrared Light Painting It was a tremendous pleasure to welcome one of the most innovative and creative Lightpainters as a guest of our event “Lightpainters United” in Berlin; Dan Chick from Denver (USA). After doing a bit of research he seems to be the only one who uses an infrared camera in light painting. Until now, anyway 😉 After watching him doing these pictures, and especially after admiring the results, we decided to give infrared light painting a try. I start a research of infrared photography on the Internet. I found quite a lot of confusing and contradictory contributions from...

Light painting workshops for old people

Age is just a number in light painting. I have taught in light painting workshops for old people, some of them have been over 100-years-old. But it’s not so easy to teach someone with a memory disease or difficulties to move. Some of them might ask every five minutes where they are and when they will get food.

But one time I first...

Artist of the Month October – Palateth

Artist of the Month October – Palateth Let me start this one by apologizing about the delay… It should have been ready last week, I know. But its the time of the year when my other activities are going wild and time is a thing we don’t have enough…  Blogging is way more work that I thought it would.. 😛 back to the article … There is sometimes in life when you meet some person and somehow before you actually meet them you kind of know how they are.  Ever got that feeling? Well, I do and one of...
