I think it is cool as hell. Let the haters hate.
 
2013-04-10 02:32:32 PM  
Ha!  You call yourself an Artist?!

No, those were awesome, and I am jealous you got them published.
 
2013-04-10 02:33:22 PM  
So you are facing north?
 
2013-04-10 02:34:30 PM  
For an article about pretty pictures, what's with the horrendously compressed lead image?

Thought the same thing.  The actual light paintings are so cool, why did they lead with garbage?

/I'm going to try this myself tonight methinks
 
2013-04-10 02:39:17 PM  
very cool
 
2013-04-10 02:40:06 PM  
You should have a guy dressed as George Washington mimic chopping down a tree.  Call it something like "Apocrypha".
 
2013-04-10 02:43:02 PM  
That Fenix is a nice little torch.

The art is cool, also.
 
2013-04-10 02:43:03 PM  
Drunken monkey with a flashlight?

Seriously, pretty neat stuff.

That was a Farker? Awesome, I saw it yesterday and thought it was pretty cool.

You should see the full size images. They all look like they were compressed at JPEG quality 0, with solid blocks where sky should be and more noise than detail.

It's not art unless someone's smeared fecal matter on it.
 
2013-04-10 02:50:53 PM  
So, is it cool if I just refer to Fark artists as Fartists?


/nicely done, smitty
 
2013-04-10 02:52:21 PM  
Very cool. 'Grats subby.
 
2013-04-10 02:55:30 PM  
Wish I'd thought of it.

Good pics, anon  Farker.
 
2013-04-10 02:56:15 PM  
OMG! You captured ghosts in your photos! Call in the paranormal researchers!
 
2013-04-10 03:08:08 PM  
Very cool effects.  Saw a photo a kid did in high school with the Delicate Arch in Utah.  Same concept.
 
2013-04-10 03:10:24 PM  
Hmmm...since when does illumination=painting?

Art?  Sure.  I guess.  Painting?  No.

He's painting with light.

So does subby contribute to the weekly Fartography contest? And if no, why not?

Excellent work.

Beautiful work.
 
2013-04-10 03:21:31 PM  
meh.. Did this for my wife 10 years ago when she took a photography class.  She had to take a long exposure night picture, so we went to a lake and i 'painted' a canoe with a flashlight.

/made a nice pic.
//framed it and hung it in the house.
///didnt get published  :-(

Magellan was a great fartographer, but only after some good chili.

Wonderful pics Subby.  You even got a few ghosts in there.  :)

Domenge has recently gotten inspired by the organizational-development model known as Appreciative Inquiry, which urges people to spend less time and effort on problem solving and more on finding and then bolstering good things.

That's an interesting concept.  Is it beyond "think good thoughts", and how so?  Not snarking, I like this idea.
 
2013-04-10 03:28:45 PM  
I liked light painting cherry blossoms before it got all mainstream.
 
2013-04-10 03:33:02 PM  
I have had prettier things violently fly out of my body after a three day vodka Burrito bender.

I lied, nice pics.
 
2013-04-10 03:33:53 PM  
I have no idea what light painting is, but those are some right-pert photoboxes.
 
2013-04-10 03:45:20 PM  
Very cool.

If it's not raining tonight, I'm gonna try this in my backyard.
 
2013-04-10 03:48:41 PM  
Wow.  So this guy takes three frickin awesome pictures and The Atlantic decides to lead with this piece of crap?

I think you caught a fairy in the first picture... on the full size, bottom left quadrant right about the bifurcation of the major branch

The gorillapod supports the weight of an DSLR?  I've ruined a few similar mini tripods with too heavy cameras in the past.
 
2013-04-10 04:08:35 PM  
It is far more creative than anything I have done in the last year so I tip my hat to you. At least you are out there making things happen instead of posting comments on Fark like me.

You know, I was out exercising yesterday and I saw sign along the bike path that read "no matter how slow you are going you are still going faster than the person on the couch."

Subby, you are going faster than the person on the couch.
 
2013-04-10 04:10:21 PM  
I really like the light paintings, but lose the people unless they're the primary subject.

Thomas Kincaid, pissed off at losing the title of painter of light

Very cool! A university in my hometown has a web page dedicated to light painting:

http://bigshot.cias.rit.edu/
 
2013-04-10 04:19:05 PM  
Was it the people with the glowsticks? Or the illuminated tree? Where was the painting?

/not really kidding
//I love how Fark is "#lolOPPOSITE" of everything
/if the headline said something like "loser tries to make srz paintings", people would be all over it
 
2013-04-10 04:25:40 PM  
I have a new desktop picture for work. Thank you, Farktographer!

Subby here,

Thanks for all the comments. As far as the Appreciative Inquiry (AI) stuff goes, it's a tool organization development (OD) practitioners use. Most consultants out there are very problem-centric. The idea behind AI is looking for strengths, positives and unexplored opportunities, and capitalizing on them. For me as an individual, I have started to see things very differently since I've been employing it at the organizational level and when coaching folks one on one. There's a photographer at National Geographic called Dewitt Jones that makes AI the focal point of all of his work. I saw one of his Youtube vids recently and found it inspiring and decided to break out of my usual mold.

I have yet to post in a Farktography contest as many of you have humbling work. Maybe I'll give it a shot one of these days.

Until then, I hope you all have a rockin rest of the week.

I liked it too, but the headline specifically denoted that this is where the harsh critics were to gather, and I simply have not seen much harshness in this thread, so, uh....

Shut your festering gob you tit, subby, you snotty-faced heap of parrot droppings.
Your type really makes me puke, you vacuous,   toffee-nosed,   malodorous     pervert!

So subby how did the gal in the second photo take to your line of "So would you like to come back to my place after this to do some more art?"
 
2013-04-10 05:00:17 PM  
Can I use that first image of your light painting as a desktop image?
 
2013-04-10 05:03:30 PM  
G-G-G-G-GHOSTS!!!  Lets get outta here, Scoob!
