Reid Godshaw is the Founder and Artist Behind Harmonic Light, Creators of totally unedited works of long exposure photography! They have created totally unique and charismatic imagery at events for over 9 years! Traveling to festivals, weddings, trade shows, TEDxLA, MTV Wonderland, The Grammys, and over 500 other events and festivals in the USA and Abroad!
Subjects first work with the artist to find a position that they love and can also stay still while holding, Seated is a great option. Some people choose huge lavish poses, some hold a glass of champagne, some meditate, others lay across a couch like a greek god or goddess... It's up to them (but we do provide suggestions)!
In some situations we ask the subjects a question or two to help get a feel for the person's tastes (Favorite colors, Favorite things to do, etc.) Then we say “3....2....1 freeze” and the camera's shutter clicks open! Reid jumps into action with light wands and custom made LED tools that have quite the mesmerizing in-person effect! Illustrating the persons position, adding a cityscape of light designs and coloring in the foreground with only REAL lights and NO EDITING! He accentuates actions and reactions, outlining the personality of the participant. He uses 100% state-of-the-art customized LED tools that have been pre-programmed with visionary art by both Brian Pollett and Reid’s Personal Experimental long exposure collection of imagery being used as brushes in his work alongside graphic designs from other artists.
The creation process is filled with enthusiasm and excitement, lights being used to draw deeply intricate and complex patterns in real time and with literally zero computer generated image effects or filters creating the image! As soon as Reid is done (normally somewhere between 60-90 seconds on average) the image pops up immediately after capture on a nearby laptop or optionally a 4K TV nearby! Guests can then share the image via E-Mail in full 61 Megapixel Resolution (printable by the subject after the event at any print shop etc in sizes over 97" wide). We also print 4x6, 5x7, and 6x8 lab quality images on site (plastic pollution offset credit is purchased for each event that uses prints for a net positive effect!) Guests can collect a free print in many sizes! We never make the same image twice! Each one is unique and most of the time they are custom tuned to each person!
Reid LOVES what he does and he hopes you do too! He has been featured in many articles, Dubbed a "Festival all star" by FEST300, Received multiple awards, and created images of over 100,000 collective people in over 9 Years of making light art! His images are often set as people's profile and cover photos on FB, IG, And who knows maybe even LinkedIn! His mission is to make your dreams a reality by creating an image that makes you say WOW!
