David Gilliver started to experiment with long exposure photography in hours around dusk and after sunset, allowing the camera to keep on exposing for longer time, producing images and effects incapable for the human eye to see.
The technique used by the artist, involves the photographer using a long - duration shutter speed on the camera, while he walks into the picture frame adding the lights he wants, using glow sticks, light orb or torches. The shoot may last as longs a 30 minutes. The effect also makes moving objects blurry, while stationary object remain sharp.
David Gilliver, Scottish painter, lives and works in St. Peter Port, on the Island of Guernsey.
During the 20 years he spent living in Glasgow, Gilliver went to Glasgow School of Art where he recieved a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art Photography. He has recently found the great interest in the surroundings of Guernsey. The artist has become known specially known for his art of making psychadelic Light Paintings. The effect is not an object of computer manipulation, but a photographic technique called long exposure and many points of light.
