Double Helix, by Hugo Baptista

I found this bridge relatively near to where I live by browsing google maps and I knew I had to light paint it. I did so with a newly crafted tool made from 2 high power RGB LEDs with custom acrylic reflectors. After having had a few attempts with other colors I decided to make the light painting design the same yellow/orange of the clouds that were lit by greenhouses nearby. I made the bridge more blue than what it already was by shining a flashlight with a blue color gel.

Photographer: Hugo Baptista (Voorburg, The Netherlands) Registered
Hugo Baptista is a freelance 3D animator, Visual Effects artist, Video producer and Photographer. Born in South Africa from Angolese parents, he has Portugese nationality and is currently residing in the Netherlands. He is a pragmatic autodidact constantly experimenting with all kinds of visual arts; exploring the boundaries of each field; learning by trial and error. Having worked most of his career on computer graphics trying to replicate reality he has found that it’s irreplaceable.

With his light painting photography work he has the opportunity to design a scene as if it were a 3D canvas, starting with an idea, finding balance in colour and performance, playing with symmetry and searching for simplicity that can be expressed in a complex way. Theoretic knowledge of light acquired during his professional career has contributed to a photographer with intricate knowledge of how light works and how we perceive it. In a professional world dominated by specialisms he considers himself a jack of all trades, and a master of all.
