Video: ‘Light Goes On’ – Over 700 individual Light-Painted Frames set to Music

light goes on youtubeArtist/Photographer Darren Pearson spent over a year painting with light to produce this video which includes over 700 individually light-painted frames, and I’m just sitting here blogging…

What’s insanely impressive is the detail painted into each shot. Darren takes us on a tour of the city, but he doesn’t just paint a person walking through, nope. He paints a skeleton riding a skate board and breakdancing. Each shot is accomplished by setting a camera up for a long exposure, then drawing with a flashlight in the air with little to no reference for where you are in each photo. You just have to keep that straight in your brain.

Not enough people have seen this video. It’s incredible work.
