There’s light painting, and then there’s this light-painted stop motion film produced by Photographer Darren Pearson. The film is a light-painted Western called ‘Fiat Lux’ and was filmed in classic Western locations such as disused gold mines and abandoned homesteads around Darren’s native California.
Even more incredible is that Darren light painted each frame freehand, combining a total of over 600 images. The amount of work involved was immense and the result is both eerie and beautiful. He explained to DIYP how he created it.
