Light Painting Photos Taken Inside Marble Mines in Italy

We’ve heard it from light painters before: the air is their canvas. The great thing about light painting is the ability to create something great just about anywhere. But that doesn’t mean that you have to start with a blank or un-interesting ‘canvas,’ so to speak.

Photographer Stefano Bellamoli decided to get creative about where exactly he created his light paintings, and so he took his lights and camera into the marble mines of Verona, Italy.

The mines that he’s photographing in are completely pitch black. His light paintings, then, provide the only light source in the entire photo. Balls of light created using both tungsten and fluorescent light sources hang above the stone, reflecting off the walls, floor and ceiling and resulting in some pretty cool images.

Here’s a selection of photos from the series, dubbed More Light to Come:

Creating floating balls of light is a fairly common practice among light-painters. We’ve seen similar creations (albeit not inside pitch black marble mines) from photographers such as Denis Smith, and even showed you how to build a DIY rig that helps you to create perfectly symmetrical light orbs.

To see more of Bellamoli’s work and keep track as he possibly adds more photos to his More Light to Come series, head over to his Bēhance page here.
