FANTASTIC KALEIDOSCOPIC LIGHT PAINTING BY JEREMY JACKSON (A C)

” My name’s Jeremy and some call me Tacky. I am
a light painting fanatic.
I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and spend
great amounts of time waving lights in front of my camera.
It’s been more than a hobby since I started in late 2008.
I aspire to share this art form with the public through
interactive workshops so that they can create their own
light painting photographs. Something as intriguing as this
should be enjoyed by all.”
Jackson began light painting in 2008, and the pursuit
quickly grew into an a portfolio of vividly-colored, fantastical
photos. His work is entirely the result of the artist waving lights
and other contraptions (pads of steel wool in a suet cage
swinging from a rope, for example) in front of his camera with
specific setting and exposures up to 12 minutes long. No
Photoshop necessary. Jackson lives and works in the
Appalachian region of Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
His Flickr page gives detailed information on the camera
settings he uses for each photo to create such vibrant results.
Take a look at some of his recent work below.
