Brian Bowen Smith - Intro

Light, motion and expression

"The real inspiration comes from how I perceive angels in my dreams. When one of these angels appears, I see floating bodies of lights with minimal details."

Brian Bowen Smith - Painting

I thought it would be interesting to paint with my camera.

The use of long exposure times was part of Brians creative process. "I wanted the images to be mostly unrecognizable, but I also wanted to be able to understand what I was looking at."

By shooting with the M10 Monochrom, the black and white results are immediate which allows me to concentrate on tones and contrast and see what I’m trying to capture a lot easier.
