Aurora Movement

Aurora Movement light painting paradise
Aurora Movement
It all started in 2015 with some tea candles spunning on a sushi plate.

 

Mafu began to explore some long-exposure works and his enthusiasm for light painting art photography was on fire.

 

He stayed at his old music club for a month and experimented with all kinds of light sources. Eventually it involved more and more people around him and the Lightpainting became an escape valve for the difficulties of life and some kind of therapy.

 

Being creative and turning every little toy of his child into lightweight paintbrushes was just the beginning. Followed by inspired collaborations with other light painters, such as Sven Gerard and Gunnar Heilmann, made possible to realize increasingly complex ideas. To give it an adequate framework, Mafu created “Aurora Movement”. At that time, artworks made were only published with that name. In early 2016 Gunnar Heilmann joined the Team and Aurora Movement with the current full lineup.
Today “Aurora Movement” is the result of the joint work of three very different artists. Marcel Fuhrmann (MaFu), Sebastian Vogel (Buschi) and Gunnar Heilmann make up Aurora Movement. But all three have their individual style and artistic forms.
When they create art together they become a great team with splendid ideas that represent a fusion of the minds of the team.
Aurora Movement began to operate when two of the artists (Mafu and Gunnar) were nominated individually for an international Lightpainting competition. Now they had to show their faces.
At Photokina 2016 Aurora Movement began to appear publicly as a team. After that, numerous collaborations with other artists from around the world followed.

Carles Calero

carles calero light painting paradise
Whenever I explain to my students or my clients what night photography and light painting are for me, I compare it as a return to childhood …

 

Do you remember when you first discovered the effects that colored pencils produced when passing over a surface?

 

Do you remember how fun it was to go out with the gang of friends to discover new worlds?

 

Do you remember the excitement of discovering for the first time a place you had never been and that your parents had told you not to go?

 

Those times when the word “boredom” and “routine” had no meaning for you because you just had not yet experienced it, and that at this point in life you probably know what it is.

 

In my opinion, night photography and light painting allow me to discover these new sensations for the second time. A new opportunity that has given me life so as not to trip over these ugly words again … and that everything is a colorful world, where the pencils have been replaced by colored lanterns, where the book “Pinta y Colorea” “It has changed for a black canvas of darkness in any remote place, where I will give birth to a new world of imagination.

 

If you want to see my works …
… if you want to see my commercial proposals …
… if you want to see my workshops, conferences and workshops …
… if you want to know a little more about my photographic career …

DARK RED TEAM

dark red team light painting paradise
“We are a group created in 2012 by a group of photography lovers in which we look for an additional point to this art.” Starting in this modality, Light Painting, we were step by step developing lighting tools and improving lighting techniques to create true images.

 

Nowadays, we try to make our dreams come true and now in DRT we have created a cultural association, because we understand people of the street must know our work.

 

We believe light painting is a form of artistic expression and therefore we do not use any type of digital edition or montage in our works. This allows us to create in-situ images, already finished without the need for digital effects. This technique allows us to take full advantage of the places we photograph, or even invent our own environments. “

DIANA PONCE

diana ponce light painting paradise
Hello, this is Diana Ponce, I live in Santander and I am fond of photography since 2010, when I decided to learn to use a SLR camera a little more seriously.

 

I did some courses to learn different techniques of photography such as: landscape, portrait, macro, lighting, etc. … until 2013 when I went to a night landscape photography workshop, which surprised me a lot, because I was unaware that I could take pictures in the dark. Followed, in 2014, I discovered the “Lightpainting” in its purest state, in the “LightArt City of Oviedo International Congress”.

 

There I met my mentor: Darren Pearson, teacher of the “FREEHAND” or freehand drawing. Thanks to him, and the support of many friends, here I am, more motivated every day, and wanting to draw, experience new strokes, new drawings, discover new tools of “LIGHT”, combine the “Freehand” with other Lightpainting techniques, At the same time, meet and make new friends with the same passion for “Light Painting”, sharing ideas and creating new challenges.

 

This is what Lightpainting has offered me, endless possibilities for imagination and creativity … Once you get hooked, it’s hard to escape !!!

Iris Cebrián "Shyroii"

iris cebrian light painting paradise
I am a photographer born in Albacete. I was always interested in painting, photography and “light in motion” although at that time I had no idea what I was doing was light painting. It was in 2010 approximately, having already a reflex camera, a tripod and remote shutter, when I began to deepen this technique by trying different tools to reach the style that today characterized me: the effects with fabrics.

 

I usually work portraits although I’m also doing freehand drawings, still lifes, product photography …

Kim Von Koels

Kim von Coels is a German Photographer who resides in Glastonbury in the UK.
Her journey with light painting started many years ago when she was at Central st. Martins university in London. Due to the confines and costs of working with film her Light Painting passion didn’t fully ignite until over a decade later when the advances in digital technology allowed an affordable approach to this art form.

 

With many years experience in creative photography Kim likes to experiment using the camera as a tool to create pictures rather than just take pictures. Playing with different styles and techniques, she has A keen interest in art history, fashion and portraiture, photography as fine art and analogue photography, including printing her own images in a darkroom. She often merges different practices and ideas to create unique images, with light painting being only one of many of her creative outlets.

 

Her light Painting is usually centred around the human form, drawing inspiration from magic, ethereal and feminine vibes or futuristic sci-fi characters and scenes.

 

Nowadays Kim works with a large variety of Light Painting styles and techniques and has firmly embedded herself in the worldwide light painting community, collaborating with other Light Artists, participating in Light Painting events and her work appearing in several group exhibitions.
She also recently opened her first solo exhibition ‘See the Light’ at the Art Catto gallery in Loulé, Portugal as part of the Luza International festival of light.

Light Hunters

light hunters light painting paradise
The group of boys met in a workshop of Riders of Light in Barcelona. After that, a Facebook group was created with workshop assistants and the professors themselves.

 

Finally in that group there were 5 members and decided to stay to go out one night to take pictures and apply what we have learned. There, it began his story on a night when several photos were taken, two of which were selected in the international lightpainting contest organized by Lpwa, being these exposed in photokina as part of the 100 best international levels.

 

Each of the members provides the necessary spark for everything to work creatively:

 

Abel from the first moment showed his initiative and his ingenuity to create those scenes in moments of the night in which you stay blocked, in addition to having a unique tool, a optical superfiber of a very unusual size.
Edu was the first to teach the group what the olympus were capable of and what they could give us for this technique. He was also the owner of specific tools for light painting and multiple ways of use.

 

Ignasi brings his curious way of looking at the frames and choosing the most appropriate light sources for the photo we would make.

 

Javi is unique in seeing frames that none of the others saw. When the rest of us looked at awall or a ruined door, he saw some stairs or a hole in a wall to get the juice.

 

Loren is in charge, as in any great team, he directs, he coordinates the departures, he looks for the locations and make the group in general motivated and excited at each exit.
They are the Light hunters and have 3 years of continuous evolution in this technique in which the limits are the that marks our imagination.

Luis Medina

luis medina light painting paradise
My name is Luis Manuel Lafuente Medina although everyone knows me as Medina, the name which I sign my works.

 

All my life I have been interested in photography, a hobby that I already very young inherited from my father. In 2014 I discovered Light Painting with DKL and since then I have not stopped.

 

I also like travel photography, night photography and landscapes, disciplines that I try to combine in my work Light Painting whenever I have the opportunity.

 

A very important part of Light Painting is the design of light tools something that occupies a large part of my time and that I like as much or more than putting myself behind the camera.

 

I hope you enjoy our tools as much as we do the Light Painting Paradise team.

Olivier Thermes "Dawn"

dawn light painting paradise
My trip goes mainly in the dynamics of the meetings:

 

I discovered the Lightpainting in the spring of 2011. I immediately realized the enormous potential of this tool and decided to embark on an adventure with enthusiasm and excitement. Then came the encounter with urban explorers in the spring of 2012, discovering old disused industrial sites, abandoned quarries … imagine it at the time of its activity … surpassing the codes of society, the limitations and hassles of big cities to enjoy the silence and relax. This is the embryo of an artistic approach and stage of development, after learning the basic principles of the discipline.

 

Throughout 2013, I began a series of varied artistic collaborations and meetings to sharpen my vision and expand my palette. Since 2014, my approach is part of a work of appropriation and transformation of space.

 

I like to paint with light places and people I know who are sources of inspiration. My tool allows me almost all the possibilities and I see it as an extension of the world of graffiti with a unique dimension. The non-otherness of public space.

Roy Wang

roy wang light painting paradise
My first steps in photography took place in 2010 while I was working in Japan. At that time I did landscape photography by day and night photography at sunset.

 

As I enjoyed the night landscapes so much, I began to investigate new techniques related in some way to night photography. One thing led to the other I ended up involved in lightpainting, a technique that has not provided me more than satisfactions.

 

What I like about light painting is to practice over and over again until the desired effect is achieved. The harder it is to get the result you have in mind, the greater the enjoyment!

 

Every day I try to improve my technique and improve the movements to create my designs, but it is not an easy task. I remember that at first I was only able to create a jumble of disordered lines, but I did not give up; I tried again and again and continued shooting until I managed to memorize the strokes that allowed me to get the desired picture.

 

Another thing that I like about lightpainting is that the “object” does not really exist. They are just lines of light in the air. That is why you have no idea of ​​the result you will get until the exhibition ends and the shutter closes … The adrenaline rush when looking at the result on the camera screen is something indescribable.

 

My first love within the Lightpainting was the freehand or lightpainting freehand. I received my first freehand tool from Light Painting Paradise in 2016. It is a comfortable tool, with a nice touch, that allows me to draw freely and capture my works without limitations. Having a tool that adapts to your needs is very important for any lightpainter and for me the freehand tool was just what I needed to continue evolving my art.

Tom Hill

tom hill light painting paradise
Tom Hill is a 39 year old photographer who lives in Newcastle in the North of England.

 

Tom discovered light painting thanks to his girlfriend who knew Ian Hobson, a well known artist in the field of light painting in England and since then he has spent much of his free time in the tunnels and dark places of Newcastle and its neighborhoods.

 

Tom is famous in particular for his complex orbs, made with a combination of an LED umbrella and other tools. Thanks to his collaboration with LightPaintingParadise and his cones, he has started developing new designs using brighter tools than the umbrella, such as the plexy tubes and the orb tools

 

Now he is still working on the creation of more and more complex orbs but he also works on the creation of more organic elements such as flowers and light graffiti. With his collaboration with lightpaintingparadise, he hopes to continue improving his light painting skills and increase his family of Spanish friends.
