Light Painting Video Inspirational Artists Part 2
This video is the second part of my Light Painting Video Compilation of Inspiring Artists. Again not a competition of any kind or top something list. There are so many great light painters out there, and the fact that their work is not featured here doesn’t make them any less great of significant. My purpose for this compilation was to get more people inspired to got out and try more stuff with some of this artwork that has been an inspiration for me.
A little info about the artists:
Alexandr Gnezdilov / Russia
Nuremberg-based Alexandr Gnezdilov started light painting with a standard, non-DSLR camera. He is a perfect example that light painting is about creativity and experimenting even with simple tools. Great unusual combinations of colors and shapes are defining his artworks.
Jason D Page / USA
When you search in google about the light painting, you are for sure gonna land on his site. One of the coolest people in the light painting, I believe the first who started creating and selling tools for light painting. His page is full of resources and inspiration and its worth to follow no matter if you are a beginner or advanced in light painting. His work is also very inspirational, always trying new techniques and mixing nature elements with light painting.
Mart Barras / UK
If I would be giving any titles, he could easily get “The Master of indoor light painting.” Not that he hasn’t produced a huge body of works outdoors too, but his creativity indoors has definitely taken light painting for me to a different level. Unique use of toys/objects together with light painting techniques .. Definitely one to follow
Dan Chick / USA
Dan is a Denver-based photographer with many years experience. Experimentalist is a term he describes himself with. Open mind, trying to share his craft and learn more ways to express it, he is the creator of many visually stunning images. He also started a dedicated site about light painting with tutorials and more.
Chris Searle / UK
Another one of the new era of artists, Chris is one of the people I discovered in Flickr. Great geometrical awareness, perspective and highly creative ideas, he is another great example of what experimenting together with creativity can do.
Tim Gamble / UK
Based in Manchester, Tim has the “creative eye.” He started last year one of those 365 days challenges, and that’s how IBrit discovered him in Flickr. Great vision and use of various techniques and ways to achieve always visual satisfaction. He teams up often with other UK based light painters and collaborates in even more complex experiments.
Chris Bauer / USA
Another American photographer, Chris has his own style. Light painting addict, he finds joy in creating an imagined image in a single exposure. Through him, I learned the use of manual lenses during one shot and his work has always been inspiring.
Sergey Churkin / Russia
A man with a vision. He is the creator of LPWA ( Light Painting World Alliance) a global organization bringing together light painting artists from all over the world with the goal of making light painting more known to everybody. He has been experimenting himself with different techniques and styles.
Chris Thompson / UK
Another brit with a vast body of light painting work. Various use of tools and techniques his stuff are both impressive to watch and constantly be. With the amount of work, his is creating I think he must be constantly out light painting!
Horyma / Russia
Horyma is a project created by Igor and Irina, Moscow-based artists. Started in 2004 they have created a vast amount of work with light painting. Their mix of theatrical atmospheres, costumes and light is fantastic and very dramatic.
