Dazzling Light Paintings Show Various Destinations In Scenic Technicolor


0

An artist has gathered a collection of breathtaking light paintings – displaying different destinations in gorgeous technicolor.

40-year-old Marc Bowyer-Briggs, a safety and quality health manager from Hampshire, creates light paintings in his spare time – and the results are downright stunning.

Marc applies a variety of tools including LED lights, torches, strobes, cold cathodes, fireworks and smoke to complete his astounding works, which normally take between sixty seconds and five minutes.

“To me, the location really makes a shot – I recently had private access to the tunnel complex where the D-Day landings were planned, under Fort Purbrook,” said Marc.

“I’ve also shot in the Royal Armouries at Fort Nelson, Gatwick Aviation museum, sometimes it’ll be a field in the middle of nowhere at 2 in the morning. I regularly shoot with other light painters, someone will find a location, we will all meet there and go off to do our own individual things then meet back up for a collaborative shot. Whilst it’s a personal thing, I may already have an idea for a shot or created a new light tool to try out, there’s always the benefit of strength in numbers to the sometimes strange dark locations.

“I think what draws me towards light painting is the combination of the creative and the technical side of things. You’re ultimately using the darkness as your canvas to create, or ‘paint’ your own image- when you learn the kind of effects different light sources can give you, you’re only limited by your imagination. Creating an image in your head then seeing it on the screen is a great feeling,” Marc added.

“To get these kind of images, you’re really pushing the limits of camera technology, I think it sharpens you as a photographer. There’s always a danger when I’m out shooting, it could be due to undesirable people in a dark and remote location, or it could simply be me tripping over my tripod in the dark. A head torch at the very least is a must.”
