The many processes with drawing with light which I find exciting but I have only scratched the surface of the possibilities.

I have been creating light drawings by taking long exposure photographs with torches, LEDs, laser pointers, a home made pixelstick, flourescent pigments under ultraviolet light, electroluminescent wire, not to mention Christmas tree lights. I have also used digital video processing to create interesting effects with motion trails.

Subjects include natural phenomena such as trees in the wind, flights of birds and turbulent water.
