Exploring the different areas of photography is a fun experience to say the least. Photographer and light painter Darren Pearson takes light painting to a new level with skateboards and an amazing style to boot.
Picasso did it. Photographers in the community had great times with it. Darren Pearson however, does it with impeccable style. This Polaroid print from one of Pearson’s light painting sessions is a running contender for this year’s Halloween celebrations. His reaper looks totally laid back, far from the popular image he is portrayed with. Just look at how he seems to pet his skeleton dog, how cute.
Light painting is a marvel to look at and photographer Darren Pearson made it more fun for light painting enthusiasts who look at his art. His digital short “Light Goes On” is a fitting tribute to this area of photography. Its dynamic take on the usual light paintings give a new perspective to fun with light paintings.
His dancing, running and skateboarding pal just plainly amazes with its quirky antics and peek-a-boo style. The video made by Pearson is short and sweet, hitting just the right spots for a quick but awesome take on light painting photography. See more of his works here as well as his light painting skeleton gifs.

As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewelyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewelyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
