Fashion Photos of Models Wearing Light Painted Dresses

London-based advertising and art photographer Atton Conrad does some pretty interesting mixing of fashion and light painting photography. He has done a number of images for magazines and ad campaigns that feature models wearing dresses manufactured from light rather than fabric. For each fo the images, Conrad paints the dress around the model in a blacked-out studio while remotely triggering the camera.

You can see more of his work on his website under the category “light painting”.

    Love the idea but, you’d think it’d be easy to find a light painted outfit for a plus sized model ;o)

    GO EAT A CHEESEBURGER! AND TAKE OFF THOSE WEIRD ASS SHOES! lol, actually this is pretty cool. 

  • Tampa Band Photos

    Very creative.  Might give this a shot sometime.

    For some reason I am seeing photoshop vs actual light painting during exposure – maybe it’s my cynicism? Should the title really be something like using stroked paths to simulate light painting?

     The ass shoes are definitely stupid, the light painting technique is nice.

  • Fashion photographer London

    Totally agree with rwboyer. I needed 2 seconds to realize that this is photoshop…. eye inspired by light painting technique. 

  • rwboyer

    I am definitely getting more cynical as time goes on – as I fail to grasp the meaning of doing stuff like this? Well besides the fact that it looks “kewl” (note that is the way you spell cool to look cool and has no meaning).

    WTF is up with those shoes?  Too photo shopped and too thin…

  • Andy Kho
