Sculpting with Light Using LEDs
Harold Ross is a photographer who dabbles in the art of light sculpting, a practice that involves selectively illuminating parts of a landscape and taking photos that result in the area looking like an surreal illustration more than a photograph. Ross makes extensive use of LED flashlights in his craft. Photographer Harold Ross is a practitioner of “light sculpting.” Visiting various outdoor landscapes at night, he uses LED flashlights and other sources of light in order to selectively illuminate portions of his images. The resulting photos, which together form a project called “Night,” show various locations in a style that looks more like an illustration or rendering than a photograph. The Pennsylvania-based has been working on perfecting this technique for over two decades years now. He says that part of the reason he started the series was to deal with his “childhood fear of being out in nature in the dark.” More from PetaPixel.
