New from Rocky Nook: Painting with Light – Light Art Performance Photography

painting-with-light

The authors coined LAPP to label their unique art form, Light Art Performance Photography. It is a form of light painting but is not limited to just illuminating static objects; it also requires the photographer to create and capture new subjects constructed entirely of light. LAPP pieces are usually shot at night using long exposure times to capture complex sequences of precisely choreographed movements.

Painting with Light: Light Art Performance Photography by Joerg Miedza and JanLeonardo Woellert is a new book from Rocky Nook that explores this new art form.

The first part of Painting with Light describes the evolution of LAPP as told by its originators, while the middle section goes on to present a gallery of spectacular, large format LAPP images. The final section offers some basic steps and tips to give you a starting point for creating your own LAPP artworks.
