Wired Sci-Fi Captures

Wes Whaley Creates Stunning Unaltered Images Using El Wire

— August 23, 2011 — Tech
Looking at the work of Wes Whaley, it's hard to believe this artist doesn't use Photoshop to perfect his sci-fi portraits. Instead, this talented artist uses a Canon Rebel XS camera, RBG stripe, a transportable tripod and special EL wire to create his unique portraits of light.

Some have described the work of Wes Whaley to be painting with light, and looking through each of these illuminated works of art, I'd have to agree. With the saturated colors popping through each frame it really seems impossible to pick just one favourite from Wes Whaley's portfolio.

Implications - Playing with light and colors no longer has to begin within the tech or art realms, as modern companies can implement the latest technology and art into their product promotions and displays. Companies who do in fact utilize the aesthetic benefits of technology and art will likely find their visual presentations far surpass that of competitors.
Trend Themes
1. Light-based Artistry - The trend of using light as a medium in art is creating disruptive innovation opportunities for companies to incorporate visually stunning displays and promotions.
2. Enhanced Visual Presentations - Companies can leverage the latest technology and artistic techniques to enhance their visual presentations and stand out from competitors.
3. Unconventional Photography - Artists like Wes Whaley are pushing the boundaries of traditional photography by using special elements like EL wire to create unique and captivating portraits.
Industry Implications
1. Marketing and Advertising - Companies in the marketing and advertising industry can explore the use of light-based artistry and enhanced visual presentations to create more impactful campaigns for their clients.
2. Event Planning and Production - The event planning and production industry can leverage the trend of light-based artistry to create immersive experiences and memorable events for attendees.
3. Photography and Imaging - The photography and imaging industry can embrace the unconventional photography techniques used by artists like Wes Whaley to offer new and innovative services to their clients.
