Juxtapoz @ E3 2012: Small But Mighty Games

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 08, 2012
Xbox live arcade games have become some of my favorites to play during the last two years. The risks they are willing to take in both styling and gameplay is what sets them apart from the mainstream titles.

In order to fully understand what light painting is, because, I don't know, I think it needed a definition, I went to Wikipedia and found this: "Light painting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera." Knowing this, Simon Berger has created a fantastic series of light paintings made to appear as if light was raining on the figure in the photos.
