Fiber Optic Light Painting Portrait of one of my oldest friends Daniel. He used to live right next door so it was easy to invite him for a shooting.
Fiber Optic Light Painting Portrait of Binta. We used only one flower for this shoot. So this is when Light Painting helps to copy it into two different spots in the image. The image felt so right in these recent times. Super powerful for me.
It takes that special connection between a model and a photographer to get the shots to touch the viewer. Together with Olenka, I created several different series of Fiber Optic Light Painting Portraits and she always looks so different. Every time she shows a different side and a different mood. One of the most fascinating models I had the pleasure to work with.
Torn apart in thoughts. Simple and fast Fiber Optic Light Painting Portrait of Carla. It was so fun and rewarding to get a result so fast.
To my surprise, this has become one of the most successful images on my Instagram channel. Heidi, a photographer herself visited me and interviewed me, then of course we played with the fiber optic brushes. Loving the result I am super happy that it was received so well be all of you.

One of my favorite tools in Light Painting Photography is the Black Fiber Optic Brush in different configurations combined with different colors. Here you’ll find a few of my most exciting examples of this technique. There is also a tutorial about this. Please see the ‘video’ section for that.
After playing with that tool with my neighbor Daniel (first photograph) I found what others may call a signature tool. I really fell in love with Fiber Optic Light Painting Portraits and saw immediately the endless possibilities. After the photo with “The guy with that beard” as many people started asking questions; how did you do that? That’s when the tutorial came about. The tool has been around for some years before I got into it but for some reason, I started using it a little bit differently. Anyhow, I hope you like what you see.
If you want to create these Fiber Optic Light Painting Portraits you need those fiber brushes. Depending on where you live you can purchase that in your country. Why is that one of the first questions? If you have some small item sent to you from around the world its not only not friendly for the environment. It also implies some customs fees. Please consider that first, before you deal with unknown costs. If you put shipping and customs aside you get a Fiber Optic Brush starting at 15€ or 24$ depending on where you get it.
