Intro to The Art of Light Painting – TAO LP 0

Dear curious creator,

I’d like to introduce you to my intention as a writer and collaborator of the light painting blog here. I’ll be sharing articles based on the art of light painting, what I questioned, discovered, and experienced.

From what I’ve observed, the conversation around the art remains relatively rare and overshadowed by effect and techniques, which is fine but for some out of your curious on how to deepen the art of it, I’ll do my best to provide insights and inspiration.
All the ingredients are important, there isn’t any separation between the art and the technique. It just seems harder to talk about the creative process since it’s more abstract and has to do with the inward journey and intuition, emotions, and imagination.
In my personal experience, those elements are challenging, therefore, interesting to explore to deepen the creative zones of our minds, hearts, and spirits. All of this to enrich the whole creative experience on this journey.
In the end, to go deeper means adding a touch of magic to what you are, already doing right now.

So to break the ice and get going, here is a fresh new video I did this week. My goal, with this one, was to capture my daily reality of practicing my light painting katas.

Hope this will inspire some of you.


TAO LP  (The Art Of Light Painting).

About The Author

Patrick Rochon

Painting with actual light has been a fascination for two and a half decades now. Having explored many techniques, created many different light tools and light painted thousand of pieces, I’ve come to a place of finding beauty in simplicity, opening a world of small details within a line that contains it all. To me, that is where fine art begins. Patrick is an award-winning Light Painting photographer with over 24 years of experience. First prize winner of the Nikon photo contest in Japan, Patrick has done light painting photography for various fashion, rock magazines, CD jackets, DVD covers, posters, and international ad campaigns. Clients also include Toyota and Honda. Born in Montreal, Canada, Patrick has lived mainly in Tokyo, New York and Paris for 15 years.

    Absolutely right words. Magic of light painting art isn’t in effects and techniques. it is in our imagination. Good times to talk about this, Patrcik.
