Experiment: Inspired by Light

So I wrote last week about how TCB is an amazing and inspiring Light Art Performance Photographer from the Twin Cities. Here are some of my own photos inspired by TCB's work.

Light Streamers

Now this isn't light art performance photography. This would probably be closer to light art. But in this case, instead of the subject moving and creating the light image, I made these pictures by moving the camera during the capture of a fixed light source.

Centripetal Light

In other words, I shook the camera in a calculated way while taking photos of my neighbors Christmas lights. Pretty cool, huh? It's amazing how another photographer's perspective and technique can add new angles and colors to your own.

Light Drizzle

Sara Duane-Gladden is a freelance writer and photographer in the Twin Cities area of the great state of Minnesota.


  1. Fantastic. I never thought to move my camera to create light art. In the past, I simply zoomed in while exposuing an image. Thanks for the tip and for the link to twinCitiesBrightes.

  2. You're Welcome! Glad to highlight the work of great artists and spread around the inspiration :) And Thanks so much for you comment, it means a lot to know that my own learning experience is giving others fun ideas to try, too :)
