A local photographer is finding success in the unique form of photography known as light painting. Liberty Best got her start through photojournalism and began taking more photos for fun at home of her kids. She started light painting, the art of using long exposure photography along with effects using flashlights, while she was camping several years ago. Now, a relatively short time later, Best’s work has been displayed in multiple art shows and has even been selected for special exhibits around the United States as well as overseas. Her photograph titled “Unworldly” is currently part of the Night exhibit at the Glasgow Gallery of Photography in Glasgow, Scotland. The “Unworldly” light painting was taken in Fantasy Canyon and will be on display in Glasgow through November 14th. Up next, Best’s work will be exhibited in the Praxis Gallery of Photographic Arts in Minneapolis from November 22nd to December 22nd. “I continually expand what I try to say in the art,” shares Best, who has been excited to see that her work resonates with her audience as prints have been selling at the art shows and through her website.
