Finally, after 6 challenging weeks of web design, countless coffees and sorting through Lightroom archives, it’s finally done. I am sure you all have a few questions about this new venture of mine and I am going to try to answer a few of them here in this post.
Why the name “Lightpaint Lab” ?
I have always been fascinated by Lightpainting photography and am delighted to be able to share what I know with you. It is interesting to note, that the word “photography” was created from the greek roots phōtos, genitive phōs ”light” and graphé ”drawing”, together meaning “drawing with light”. Which in essence makes every photograph, painting with light.
I really like the idea of a Laboratory. It means I can experiment, to constantly try new things and push the boundaries of what’s possible but at the same time allow myself to make mistakes and evolve. By the way if you find any spelling mistakes or find something is not working on the site, please let me know.
Secondly a lab is also a place to collaborate and work together. This is a big part of LightPainting, more often than not am I working with someone to create the images you see here. Eventually I would love to make LightPaint Lab a hub for the best Lightpainting Artists around.
Lastly when I hear the word lab I immediately imagine the smell of the chemicals in my old analog darkroom (may it rest in peace) . Crafting and delivering the best in fine art prints is a big part of this business and soon you will be able to purchase these from our gallery.
