Light Spray

French designer, Aissa Logerot, developed ‘halo’ an LED light spray. Instead of spraying paint, it has an LED that sprays light. The LED’s brightness can be altered, and the colors are interchangeable.  Users simply have to shake it to recharge its power.

Light paintings, also known as light drawing or light graffiti, is a photography technique in which exposures are usually made at night or in a darkened room. The images here are from Jan Wöllert and Jörg Miedza, the guys behind LAPP-PRO. The light art performance photography (LAPP) is a one-shot, long exposure photography, performed additionally with movement of light. LAPP originates on a real-time basis directly in front of the camera, created between opening and closing the shutter.
