I Have a Super Power by BenHeine I Have a Super Power by BenHeine

_________________________________________________

This is a long exposure shot. It's a real photo. This picture is the result of an improvised collaboration with my long time friend Stoff (make sure to check out his page, there are some amazing creations to view).

I took this photo by night at the seaside in Hastings a few days ago, while I was travelling to the UK for an exhibition in London (Battersea Affordable Art Fair). I lived in Hastings from 2002 to 2003, it was so nice to be there again!

Stoff makes incredible "orbs" by playing with home made light sources. Luckily, Caroline Madison was there with us... I first "flashed" her and then took a 30 sec photo, while stoff was making the magic orb in the middle of the composition.

This photo is dedicated to my friend Marcel De Munnynck, who passed away a few days ago.

If you wish, you can view a detail here.

Moving Shine Fire

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Moving shine fire
On to and into
Hearts own desire
Feelings so true

Everything inside
Rousing and glowing
Feelings that hide
Now in their showing

Star twinkle in light
Fondling burn
Dreams on so bright
Rotating ageless turn

Super powers beyond
Times spinning twist
From a glowing wand
Magic has kissed

Poignant spark
Orderly glow beams
Bending the dark
To instantaneous themes

Just like life is
In growing and making
When its bliss
Entangles new waking

This is amazing. I don't know how those lights were created but they surely fullfill their purpose, to amaze the viewer. The whole atmosphere is magical and every detail, the stars, the houses, the model, is perfect. I am truly stunned.

Wow, I know your super power is imagination, which knows no bounds. This is an amazing collaboration which all three of you were part of, now that is art.

i will critique this later, i am rather busy right now. i feel i should critique it because it is a technique i have been attempting to master to a while now, not the light itself, but the making of an orb. you can make fire with glowsticks you know :)

Since you are working with light, i thought you might be interested. you just wave the glowstick around madly in unpredictable patterns.

Wow. I've come across your art many times before and admired it, I had no idea you lived in my hometown for a year. :) This is a beautiful shot!
