Light painter Darren Pearson (previously here and here) is back with a new stop motion short that follows the adventures of a skateboarding skeleton. In the making for nearly a year, the video involves over 700 individual photographs that were painted in camera using a small flashlight.

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)

Photographer Darren Pearson (previously) has been perfecting his long-exposure light painting techniques over the last few months. While I really enjoy his dinosaurs you can see lots more in his recent California Soul series that explores Californian culture through surfing, skateboarding and skeletons.
