Light Paint

So photography is all about how you see light and what you can make from it- the image. Once you can see light it becomes a thing of magic and astounding gravity. Besides being a photographer, I am a self taught painter. I started painting because I wanted art in my home, and I wanted my home to feel like a healthy place to come to to decompress my mind and art in many ways helps with this process. And then I became a photographer also. Now I wanted to find a way in which I could bring the two together, painting and photography and so I started out on a mission to create colorful abstract scapes with light that would make you think of a painting, that when you looked at these images you would wonder where is the separation? Is this a painting or is this a photograph. To me they are one and the same. Its art. I have found other ways to merge this process but for now I will share some brief examples of what I am talking about.
