I met Paul Lanzi in college. He was a computer science major and later, cybersecurity wizard by day. I did not know that he had a deep passion for long exposure photography. We caught up on one of my business trips out to the Bay Area in 2018. I picked up groceries to play with styling and was surprised to see he had set up a small light painting studio in the garage!
We took turns moving different colors of finger lights across the backdrop and through the dishes before the shutter clicked. I’ve never collaborated like this and it was really exciting to light my dishes in a new way.
I love how ethereal some of the photos came out.
