Photo: "Field Walk"
A new light painting realized last night was added to the "Light is Life" series.

On my way back from a private party where I did a light painting workshop, I parked my car on a field and shot this light painting.
I wish I had my 35mm 1.4 to get more visible stars !

The headlights of the car were lit like 4 seconds to make the field visible.
Nothing really special finally but I like the haystacks and the moving stars.

Settings : 35mm, F/2.8, approx. 5min

Remember that a light painting tutorial is available on my website in both english and french ^^Photo: Passerelle Simone de Beauvoir II

Last night, I went out for a photowalk in Paris, near a place called "Bibliothèque Francois Mitterand", a huge library. A superb bridge crosses the Seine river.. I had to shoot it !

I especially like the two guys, sitting in the background. They were looking at me probably thinking "What the hell is he doing !?" ^^
You can see my jeans and shoes. Next time I ll be a "man in black", no more visible clothes on the photographs !

More to come. Light is Life !Photo: After School - Sporty

This light painting was shot at Les Lilas, just outside Paris. I found this radio tower impressive and interesting.. I really wanted to make it visible in one of my photographs. Done ^^

Exposure was set on Bulb mode (no rush).
This is a one try light painting. Rare enough to be said ! hihi
I called it "After School - Sporty" because as you can see, these two guys are playing Basketball. And yes, that is a pure air shot ! Next time I will bring a chair so I can draw higher ;)

This light painting is to be shown next to "After School - Lazy" to give sense to the titles.

Are you the lazy or sporty kind ? :)

Welcome to all my new friends. Not easy to manage all the new contacts but I am doing my best ! I will continue to light paint, you make me want to !

*Light is Life ! *Photo: Light painting shot during a cool photowalk with +Geoffroy Lasne in Paris.
Bir Hakeim bridge
The light character was drawn on the side where the background was as dark as possible.

Remember that bridge ? Yes, that is the one visible in Inception !

Wondering what I am doing tonight as a light painter ?

Well, I am having a chat with the light characters I created. Talking about past and coming photo shoots. That does mean that new light paintings are coming ! And maybe a making of ^^Photo: Friends - Light painting by Christopher Hibbert, french photographer and light painter.

I have been working near this place for a few months now and I finally decided this morning to take my camera and tripod for the day.
Now that it becomes dark early, I don't have to wait until late to realize light painting in the streets.. and that is a good thing since it is so cold out there !

This light painting was shot at Les Lilas, just outside Paris. I found this radio tower impressive and interesting.. I really wanted to make it visible in one of my photographs. Done ^^

Exposure was set on Bulb mode (no rush). I did a few tries before getting it done properly. Here is a group of young people, having a chat after school.
I called it "After School - Lazy" because these guys are simply standing there. I used to do that a lot too !

This light painting is to be shown next to "After School - Sporty" to give sense to the titles.

Are you the lazy or sporty kind ? :)

This light painting was shot few weeks ago. The other one of that Bir Hakeim bridge was shared right after the photowalk.

The red light character stands in the shadow, just near a red traffic light which gives the red lighting to the right side of the photographs.
Above, a subway is passing by : Line 6, next stop Passy !

Light is Life !

Another light painting shot in Switzerland, at the Signal de Bougy.
Shot at 9.15 PM, there is enough light to make the city and lake visible but also enough darkness under the threes to realize the light painting.

This is my first panoramic light painting and there is another one waiting.

I am having a great time in Switzerland, the weather is just amazing and from where I am staying, I can see the Mont Blanc :) If it is still good tonight, I ll try to include it in a light painting.Photo: LX357

Shot from a vineyard of the village of Aubonne (Switzerland).

The light ray in the sky shows the move of a plane. I checked on the internet, it should be a plane from London, flight LX357.. that is why I gave this name to the light painting.
In the background, the Alps are visible.

I may try to realize a HDR version of this photo using Trey Ratcliff tutorial as it is pretty dark where the light character stands.

New light painting to be published soon ^^Photo: Photo: Photo: Light - Light painting by Christopher Hibbert, french photographer and light painter.
