Night photography with skillfully –placed lighting can be very dramatic. Here photographer John Valentine uses pyrotechnics to create stunning forms against a dramatic backdrop. These images combine flash, long exposure, pyrotechnics and wonderful cloudy skies at night. While the overall techniques are simple, the results never cease to awe and intrigue. Complimenting vivid colors dominate these images. Secondly a strong sense of form and shape add to the dominant artistic elements. While these images don’t necessarily evoke any substantial meaning, I enjoy the art for art’s sake. I think you might as well.
