Light Painting photographer Patrick Scherer has been creating some beautiful light painting sculptures recently using a drill, yes I said drill.
As with most things that are worthwhile the process is labor intensive. The most difficult part of creating one of the beauties is getting the combination of exposure time and light elements just right, it a lot of trial and error. Patrick says “We must not hesitate to make tests of all kinds even if the results are sometimes catastrophic.” I think that is great advice we can all apply to our work.
Patrick was kind enough to share a selection of his latest images and a couple of behind the scenes shots to hopefully inspire you to make your own, check them out below!
