Photo Booth Lets Subjects Paint Light Into Images
LightOmatic is a participatory experience in photography technique that combines patterns and color
Photo editors and festival planners are always imagining creative ways to bring more depth and aesthetic to a simple picture. We crop, layer, brighten and filter until the photo becomes an exaggerated and falsified perception of what the image once was. These experiments in photography are increasingly mainstream and available to everyone who wants to spruce up their photo quality.
Light painting is a popular technique in which exposures are made and let subjects paint light directly into their pictures. The LightOmatic Photo Booth by Dazler is a new development which brings the experience off the screen and allows people to design vibrant light patterns in the air with miniature LED bulbs. The permanent experiment led by a collective of French artists is the first Photo Booth of its kind.
