Fine art photographer Harold Ross uses delicate light painting techniques to create surreal landscapes photographed late at night. The photographer, who has been perfecting his methods for over 25 years, uses an LED flashlight and other lights to selectively illuminate various areas in each photograph, a process he refers to as “light sculpting”. The results are scenes that look almost like digitally rendered illustrations, with numerous light sources that seem to come from every direction. The photos you see here really don’t do his work justice, see them much larger on his website. Ross also teaches about light painting over on his blog. (via faith is torment)
