Lux Noctis: Photo Series by Reuben Wu
Photographer Reuben Wu captured the gorgeous “Lux Noctis” series using drones with LED light sources attached to them.
“…a series of photographs depicting landscapes of North America “within the framework of traditional landscape photography but influenced by ideas of planetary exploration, 19th century sublime romantic painting, and science fiction.”
We are overwhelmed everyday by beautiful images of the familiar. I imagine these scenes transformed into undiscovered landscapes which renew our perceptions of our world.
Each image is a carefully-planned scene consisting of multiple lighting positions to produce a theatrically-lit composition. Using the GPS-enabled aerial light/drones in specific positions in space, I am able to produce moods of drama and tension through use of chiaroscuro, and the ability to illuminate isolated features of a scene and exclude unwanted elements.”Photography Posted on April 12, 2016
