Photographer Reuben Wu created these incredible landscape photographs by attaching powerful LED lights to a drone and using them to light scenes in creative and dramatic ways. In an interview with PetaPixel, he says:
“Each image is a carefully-planned scene consisting of multiple lighting positions, layered to produce an almost theatrically-lit composition,” Wu tells PetaPixel. “Using the GPS-enabled aerial light/drone in specific positions in space, I am able to produce moods of drama and tension through use of chiaroscuro, and the ability to illuminate isolated features of a scene and exclude unwanted elements.”
