Go with the glow. Light show at the skatepark
The art of light painting combines with the artistry of skateboarding to bring you this free-flowing image from Arvada Skatepark in the US state of Colorado. At 40,000 sq ft, the park, which opened in 2012, is the third-largest in the USA. It includes a snake run, large bowl, medium bowl, street plaza with manual pads, banks, granite pieces, ledges, rails, step ups, benches, Jersey barrier and a pyramid. And if you know what all those things are, you’re probably a steezy sk8r.
This image was created using a technique called light painting, a photographic technique that involves moving a light source while taking a long-exposure photograph. In this way, the artist can ‘draw’ with light on the photo. How would you imagine the artist created this image?
