Oct 26th, 2019: Night photography using drones

The always-excellent site My Modern Met highlights the night photography of Reuben Wu, who recently went to the salt flats of Bolivia for a series of long-exposure light photography.

By taking long-exposure photographs, Wu is able to have complete control over how we perceive light within the environment. His newest work even incorporates light painting for an even more surreal effect. For his latest adventure, he traveled to Bolivia and ventured high into the Andes in order to visit the world’s largest salt flat—Salar de Uyuni. The resulting photographs combine all of Wu’s stylistic developments into a breathtaking portfolio.

In some imagery, Wu focuses solely on the landscape and keeps his light source invisible. In this call back to his early Lux Noctis work, the focus is firmly on the environment. However, some of the most striking visuals come when Wu creates his Aeroglyphs. In these photographs, the protagonist is the light itself. By placing these painted, geometric shapes into the expansive landscape, Wu creates an air of mystery and wonder.
Do go to the links to see more of Mr. Wu's work. My Modern Met does a great job of presenting them.

Must be a good driver to hold a drone steady enough to take a time exposure.

With a long exposure in a dark place the drone could be moving and painting the subject with varying amounts of light depending on how many passes the drone makes over each area.
