Freezelight. The art of stopping the light Automatic translate
Freezelight is a fairly carefully thought-out process of photographing at a slow shutter speed. The basic feature of this action is the creation of certain images using various light sources, without additional computer processing of the photograph.
The freezer can “draw” with the help of an available light source those images that can be captured on photographs. In such cases, the light is not only able to illuminate the subject, but acts as the main tool.
Anyone who has seen long-exposure night motorway photographs can observe the effect of frozen light. In such photographs, the light from the headlights of fast moving cars can turn into a kind of color train.
The first photographer to truly become seriously interested in the freeze-light effect was the photojournalist of LIFE magazine Gjon Mili. He attached various flashlights to the shoes of athletes-skaters. As a result of this, certain traces in space (in air) were obtained in the photographs. At that time, such a direction in photography was called "spase drawing". Later, in 1949, Gjon Mili spoke about his experiments to his friend Pablo Picasso. He was very interested in what he heard, and decided to certainly try himself in this area of photography. The artist made the first drawings with the help of light in his pottery workshop. Gjon Mili lit his friend with flash light. At this time, his friend painted in the air. This creative tandem created a whole series of photographs. In the same year they were published in the magazine “LIFE”.
It follows that Pablo Picasso was the first artist who painted meaningful images with the help of light.
For a long time no one wanted to perceive freezelight as an artistic tool. Freezelight was actively developed in 2002. He was able to interest not only professional photographers, but also amateur photographers.
To take pictures with the effect of freezelight, you do not need an expensive camera, expensive equipment, as well as special skills. At the same time, one of the necessary conditions for successful photography is imagination, as well as a camera on which you can adjust the shutter speed for more than 10 seconds and the ability to apply the appropriate lighting. As a rule, the best pictures are taken when the light is slightly dim, or in complete darkness. In such cases, you can draw with anything (for example, a lighter, sparklers). In order not to get into the frame, it is best to put on dark clothes. Try not to get hit by a flashlight, as well as constantly move in front of the camera.
The popularity of certain phenomena is brought not only by their followers, but also by the number of names that they are called. Freezelight can sometimes be called light photography, luminography, light graffiti and light painting. There are many names, but the essence is the same, expressing the unique light images that are captured in the photograph. They are capable of creating an atmosphere of frozen light.
