Light Painting Portraits

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled

it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Lightpainting @ Meta Studios with Calum

After more than 7 months without doing any lightpainting i was able to do it again, which i was stoked to do so since i haven’t done it such long time, i had few friends come over to my studio to help collaborate with the shooting, also so i could teach them the basics of light painting since seems they almost never heard of it before, i used some of my gear i acquired over the year such as the incredible light painting brushes by lightpaintingbrushes.com and the awesome pixelstick by http://www.thepixelstick.com/

Tokyo Anime Style

I’d like to talk about my case study for turning normal city photographs into comic style sci-fi cyberpunk, a very under estimated and not understood genre of photography which many “ignorant” people think it’s just applying a maximum saturation filter and thats it it’s done, i wish it was that easy but that’s not the case so i’d like to shade some light into the subject.

Cyber_Seoul

 

In contrary to Japan, Korea still has pockets of de-urbanized areas yet contained in the shadows within the accelerated growth of the Technological Singularity, this sub culture urban areas contained a very peculiar set of narrow alleys, neon signs on suffocating corners, with an edgy feel of the brink of anarchy, yet the confinement of this Urban X areas seem relatively peaceful compared to other urban areas in other continents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In contrary to Japan, Korea still has pockets of de-urbanized areas yet contained in the shadows within the accelerated growth of the Technological Singularity, this sub culture urban areas contained a very peculiar set of narrow alleys, neon signs on

Where are we heading as civilization in a competitive world such as the one we coexist?, are we all aboard earthship one? or it’s only for those that make it to the top? I couldn’t stop to think how Highly Evolved Alien Civilizations with surpass all this limitations that we are going trough right now as we become Type 01, until we see us all as a unified specie, we got yet more to learn.. 
 
As i walked through the city i became just another night walker shadow with a handheld device able to capture stills of a modern civilization in the brink of technological singularity.

Cyber Shibuya Worksite

As i walked everyday on my way home from work passing Shibuya Station as my transfer station, i come across the new shibuya center that is currently being built for the Olympic Games as a way to transform Shibuya into a new powerful center and icon of Japan’s modern culture.

The scenes straight out of blade runner as the workers carry light torches guiding pedestrians along the way, it reminds of so much of a techno driven society, i decided to pull my camera and take a few shots, here is a few shots for you guys entertainment.

 

 

Japan’s economy revolves around creating numerous jobs for all kinds of totally unnecessary jobs, which it helps retired people like the one captured in my photo to get extra income and be useful in society,

they are extremely heart warming people as they asked you to please be careful in a totally not dangerous situation, this are the kinds of symbolism that makes Japanese Society an extremely kind and prosperous society.

 

I wanted to capture the feeling behind this contention bars to give the sense of a hyper cyberism at its maximum expression, the light behind the net was also very interesting

with a very nice colder effect.

 

One more shot of the scene patrol.

 

 

I edited the photo doing an anime edit color to enhance the environment.
