Through painting with light, Jane Koester has experienced a whole new approach to creating with a camera. It’s the combination of challenge and mystery that attracts her: What to highlight or hide? What shapes to follow? How to fascinate the eye with an unexpected source of light?
It’s a complex process scoping out a scene in daylight, then coming back in the dark to paint it with a portable LED panel, capturing the subject shot by shot by shot. Working with anywhere from 10 to 40 or more captures, the artist then layers them together to create the final image.
Already an accomplished photojournalist and travel photographer, Jane took up this approach in 2010. She had always envied painters ability to create their own version of what they see. Light painting allows her to add a range of movement, dimension, depth, and imagination to her work, bringing out the subtleties of a still life or the fairytale aura of a woodland scene.
