Glow Booth – Light painting photography

Thanks to cutting edge technology the possibilities for event photography has reached new heights, but if it was a game of trumps, our new Glow Booth would be top of the pile for photography innovations. Long are the days when photographers head out in the dark searching for inspiration, the glow booth expands the possibilities of light painting like never before, making it even easier to be creative.

In 1889, artist Georges Demeny created the first known light painting photograph, “Pathological Walk From in Front”, by attaching incandescent bulbs to his assistant’s clothing and taking a long exposure. Demeny used a process that could make multiple exposures on a single photographic plate in rapid succession, Marey and Demeny could capture the visible traces of an entire motion in regular intervals and study that action at a level of detail not attainable by earlier photographic technologies. The technique was groundbreaking and became the touchstone for 125 years.. at least until now.

The technology behind the Glow Booth has made it the world’s most advanced tool for light painting photography and we recently gave it to photographer Tom at a press event for Claire’s at Sketch in London. Here are the glowing results…
