Ian Hobson – Trippy Light Photography (without digital manipulation)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UK-based photographer Ian Hobson is an expert at all kinds of impressive light art photography. When you first see his images, a collection called Waving Torches at Things, you won’t believe that he creates them directly from his camera without the use of any digital manipulation. But, according to his website, he says, “All images are photographs, straight from the camera. Nothing is added, the only post-processing is conversion of the digital negatives into jpegs.”

Hobson’s complex spectacles of light combine waves, streaks, and swirls to form an image filled with trippy patterns of color. The trick to this work is the use of very long exposures to capture the variety of light streaks that he places in front of the lens. Hobson uses all kinds of light sources to create these unique images, ranging from battery powered, handheld light tubes in all colors, to flaming wool tossed into the air. The final results are incredible designs that will take your breath away! Via My Modern Met.
