Escape Monday: Light Painting

Colourful_Faffing_PThe Escape Monday project continues this week with another two posts designed to transport your mind as far away from your cubicle (read: cell) as possible.

This post features a collection of photos taken by Ian Hobson who claims that not one of these pics have been digitally manipulated, he’s created all of them by waving different coloured lights in front of cameras set on long exposure.

At least, that’s how I think he does this. The results are nothing short of mesmerising and should, even if it’s just for a minute or two, take your mind completely off the fact that it’s Monday.


















I have no idea how the hell he manages to get this right with no digital manipulation whatsoever. If he is waving lights in front of the lens then howcome he isn’t in these pics?

My best guest is that he fixes the lights to strings and swings them around. Any photographers out there wanna weigh in on how he does this?
