The word “photography” was created from the greek roots phōtos, genitivephōs “light” and graphé “drawing”, together meaning “drawing with light”. In essence every photograph is painting with light. At Lightpaint Lab we love drawing with light and different light sources, be it LED, PixelStick, Fire, the Moon or the Sun . We have been doing this for years and are consistently pushing the boundaries of what is possible. We love crazy ideas and solving problems for our clients.
