Light-Painting Portraits of Music Stars Shot in a Single Take

Light-painting photographer Jason Page and the team of ambassadors at Light Painting Brushes were recently invited to a music festival to capture creative light-painting portraits of the celebrity musicians performing over the weekend.

The project was commissioned by iheart Radio’s Wango Tango Music Festival in Los Angeles, and all the portraits had to be shot in a single take with around 1 to 2 minutes with each artist before they were ushered away for other backstage obligations.

Photographers Jason D. Page, Jason Rinehart, Efren Herrera, and Melissa Meyer came up with concepts for each of the musicians they expected to see visit their booth.

“We designed images around the latest content the artist had released and tested them using Melissa as our model, we designed and tested ideas for about 8 hours,” Page tells PetaPixel.

In the end, Page and his team captured around 50 light-painting portraits over a span of about 6 hours.

“We were really pleased with how it all worked out, especially for only getting one go to nail the shot!” Page says.
