Back to the French West Indies part 8 (Lightpainting on Hive)

2023-12-25T15:45:51

Hi everyone,

Long time no see : I was on vacation in the French West Indies.

My parents and most of my relatives were born and raised in Guadeloupe. I know it sounds exotic for most of you but, for me, it's casual : I was used to spend summer vacations here almost every year until I turned 20. But, when I grew up, I wanted to see other places so I came here less often.

My last trip here was back in 2019, before all that pandemic madness. Before Covid-19, I was used to take plane maybe 6 or 8 times a year. This trip was the first I made since december 2019.

Two weeks is really too short to visit family and friends, explore, do collaborations with local artists and spend time to lightpaint a bit. I promised myself to go back there next year 🤞

This specific picture was taken at the Phare de Vieux-Fort, on my way back home from the Artema dance school in Basse-Terre. I just lit the low stone wall and the cannon.

WHAT IS LIGHTPAINTING? Lightpainting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source while taking a long exposure photograph, either to illuminate a subject or to shine a point of light directly at the camera, or by moving the camera itself during exposure. Nothing is added or removed in post processing.
