Firstly a big thanks to youpic users on my first day here;
I got 500 faves & 10000 views in less than 12 hours !
I hope I can inspire a few of you to lightpaint and also be inspired by your pics too ...
I never use Photoshop .. I use lightroom to convert from raw, or i will set custom settings and shoot in Jpeg.
we have a lens swap group on flickr www.flickr.com/groups/lensswaps
i always post to www.flickr.com/groups/lightjunkies
I am a factory worker living in north east england and discovered Light Art late in 2012 after purchasing a large telescope and Nikon DSLR to capture the night sky. Whilst researching astrophotography tecniques and trying my hand at daytime photos i found a video on youtube called "light warfare" - this was my first glimpse of the power of light art and a great inspiration to start in my opinion
I have been addicted ever since, am now a very active member of LPWA and am trying to form a group here in the uk called LPUK just for british lighters to meet and exchange ideas and much more ...
My favourite works from my own light art include my miniature series, the double exposure stuff, the moon lens swap pics, my Lego pictures and the Kaleidoscope stuff
My inspiration has been mostly from Flickr contacts and also the LPWA site, LightPaintingPhotography.com, Lightpaint.com, Noctography.co.uk, longexposures.co.uk, lightpainting.org.uk and the Facebook Lightpainting groups :)
hope you like and im always open to critics & tips haha :) this does not mean i will listen too much though - i want to find my own way mostly - its more fun
if i seem to have copied anyone's "style" in LP then to them i would say this;
there is only so many ways you can wave a torch ...
no Lightpainting is ever the same; just as one pic of a bird is not the original version of a pic of the same bird 2 seconds later ... it's everyone's light
and we all inspire each other to further greatness
i love it when people use my ideas - it just pushes me further ...
Light lets us see the world; without it there is no colour or definition of shape, no concept of time, no history or future. Without light we do not exist
Spread the Light my friends, and make a brighter world for us all !
