I'm often asked about the name of my light painting photography project, Sublument. People are curious about the meaning and how I came up with it. It's a great question and one that I enjoy answering. Sublument is a combination of two words - "sublime" and "element." Combined, they represent the core concepts behind my work - capturing the beauty of the world around us, while also highlighting the elements that make up those scenes.
It's a simple but powerful idea and one that has resonated with people from all over the world. Thanks for taking an interest in my work - I hope you enjoy learning more about it!
Sublument is a made-up word that I came up with to describe my light-painting photography project
My light-painting photography project, which I have dubbed ‘Sublument’, is an incredibly unique and fun way to express my creativity through the camera lens. It is a practice that enables me to capture stunning images of light displays against incredible landscapes and cityscapes.
Using different techniques such as motion trails created by spinning or waving light sources across my camera lens, as well as long exposure shots of various locations while shooting with sparklers and firework displays, I strive to create visually captivating works of art.
Each photograph represents a unique moment in time - one that cannot be reproduced easily - allowing viewers to appreciate the incredible complexity of this style of photography. Sublument is truly something extraordinary!
The name "Sublument" is a combination of the words "sublime" and "lumen"
And it's similar to French "Supplement": light-Painting enriches reality with its visuals
The name Sublument—a combination of the words "sublime" and "lumen"—holds great symbolism for what light-painting has to offer. Like the French word "supplement," it implies that this art form is an extra, enriching layer to reality that captivates the eye and animates whatever space it occupies.
In many ways, light-painting is a form of storytelling, using visuals to add depth and a story-like atmosphere that dazzles onlookers. Today, light-painting has become more than just painting with light, but also a form of expression that can be used in myriad fields from advertising to photography. Truly, light-painting has become more than mere illumination: it illuminates us all.
