Originally hailing from Helsinki, Finland, Janne Parviainen creates his “light painting photography” without the use of any post digital editing…everything is straight from the camera. Parviainen uses various light sources, ranging from colored strobes, flash lights, an assortment of light toys, or other tools especially engineered for light painting, with long exposure times to produce these awesome images.
“What interests me most in light painting is the ability to draw in three dimensional space and the possibility to alter the reality without post processing programs. I like to use in my photos different kind of figures such as skeletons and ghostly light creatures. By using these figures I can add more humane stories into my photos and alter the cultural learned feelings they cause in the viewer of the photo. I especially like to use the skeleton figure because of it’s strong pre-learned emotional concept and place it in totally different situations and emotional stages than in which it’s usually seen in popular culture.”
