Ludwig Favre Uses A Drone To Create Glowing Halos In Nature

French fine art photographer Ludwig Favre has created a set of long exposure portraits in his new series ‘Neon’, using his drone as an aerial light source to create halos that hover above the earth.

Favre is a seasoned travel photographer, and recently journeyed around the globe in search of surreal landmarks for the new series. Fittingly he chose the nordic country of Iceland, and the western state of Oregon in North America, each for their unparalleled and unique natural scenery. In each location, Favre used his drone to illuminate the landscape, drawing ghostly glowing rings with a spiritual presence to the scenery. As this was happening, Favre took long-exposure photographs of the experiment. The result is neon-lit halo rings that elevate the locations into otherworldly dreamscapes. Favre explains to IGNANT that “the series represents the spiritual side of each place, depicting a form of energy in nature”. The halo rings symbolize the power of nature, “Of the planet earth we have to protect for the future generations”.
