Photography itself is called “painting with light”, and light painting is done by using a camera that can take long exposures and manipulating artificial light sources to produce lines, shapes, hues, and other interesting effects resulting in impressive images. Marc Bower- Briggs has been practicing light painting for over four years using a number of different tools such as LED lamps, coloured lights, and lasers among many other things.
His recent work involved one of the most famous places on Earth, the prehistoric monument Stonehenge. Marc was given an exclusive 2-hour access to work on the Unesco World Heritage site, some of the result images are shown below, lets check them out.

Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
