We’ve been working away at a few newish ideas for lighting landscapes. As it turns out the results are quite nice. They offer an entirely new way of looking at an object or landscape, with nearly absolute freedom to paint the land as you see fit.

From simple constructs like the Wren’s Egg above and the Tree  below, to more complicated and involved composite images like the shot of Ballymacdermot Court Tomb at the bottom.

All of these images were made by attaching lights to a drone and essentially painting with these attached lights. This technique offers the ability to capture a subject with a high degree of control over what bits get emphasised. More often these subjects are normally lit only by available light and are often subject to chance factors with weather.
