Light Painting • (2009)

I found some wonderful and amazing images from an old LIFE magazine of Pablo Picasso painting with a flash light with one continuous stroke. I decided to try the same thing, although quite willing to use a little digital magic to enhance the idea. I wanted to incorporate a very readable bit of typography into the seemingly single stroke, as well.

I invited 2 photographer friends over suggesting I would provide Dinner and Drinks and we would have some fun !  We moved everything out of my living room so all you could see was the fireplace in the background blazing away, and we shot lots and lots of “real” light painting as well as tests for how to recreate the typography portion later on.
