a place for sharing all things photographic and some things not

Snowsurfer!

I will unabashedly confess that I got this from petapixel, I haven’t been there in a while. It’s a great place to get tips and interesting bits of random photography news. But on to the good stuff.

Fashion photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton sparked this off with the idea of having “a lone character made of light surfing through darkness” and it has spawned a fantastic child. He constructed a complete LED suit and dumped it onto a professional snowboarder and filmed the results. The eventual video is astounding to say the least.

visually this is powerful in a myriad of ways, even as stills I can see the potential that this setup has. How I wish it snowed here. If it does where you are you might want to try this out the next time winter wanders round. It should be a good amount of fun!

Now I really really really want to move to a country with seasons.
