Lightpainting series built on locations in Dubrovnik and Zagreb, spanning from deep winter to scorching summer.
Shot digitally, using various techniques which vary from using a gelled flash to using thirty+ light sources of various kinds, from combining images into HDRs to creating multiple exposures.
A fascinating story of three cities: Sydney, Dubrovnik and Zagreb. The whole series was shot by two artists on two rolls of film. Then the rolls were switched - sent across the planet - and shot again.
You may witness the developed results in this gallery.

Highly experimental series, possibly never before done - no traces exist that I could find describing this technique.
The process begins by shooting a single roll of film, writing down the motives. Then, without developing the film, the roll is extracted in the darkroom, flipped and put back in a specially prepared container. After this critical step, process is completed by shooting the roll again.
Since it's flipped, this time light passes through the film base which gives it the rich red tonality.
The idea came from preparing film to be used as an infrared filter.
Three unique layers of film needed to be in place for this series to come into existence.
Everything was shot on Efke infrared film, but the real trick was the infrared filter that was inserted behind the 14mm lens. The filter was made by me, using two layers of specially processed and precisely cut slide film. The result is the true IR spectrum shown inside...
