Neon Lights

By / Feb 2nd, 2015 / , , , / No comments

Part dreamscapes, part landscapes, these amazing images capture the imagination.

Photographer David Gilliver creates these fantastical images using a hand held light source in a form of ‘light painting’. This night photography basically involves shining a light into the lens to create a pattern,  and the amazing neon, computer game like results speak for themselves.

On his website, David describes light painting as, “a photographic technique in which exposures are made usually at night by moving a hand-held light source. The light can either be used to selectively illuminate parts of the subject, or to “paint” a picture by shining it directly into the camera lens.” 

David took Photography at Glasgow School of Art before moving to the Channel Islands where he is spoilt for choice with beautiful subject matter. He also teaches workshops that show off his unique techniques.
