Darius Klabisch

Darius Klabisch seems to have taken gel-lighting at night one step further than Martin Lupton. The best I can ascertain from his website, which is written in German, Darius lives in Duisburg, Germany.

As Tim Baskerville of The Nocturnes noted on his blog, "[Darius'] work resembles mostly what the Bechers work would look like, if done on acid!" Well put, Tim!

Darius' work appears to be done at night with flashlights (big flashlights) and colored gels. It probably says that very clearly on his website, but I don't speak German. So I have to guess one that point. I do, however, understand the part about his camera: a Canon EOS Rebel.

Thanks to Tim Baskerville for finding this one.

There isn't really any info about his technique on the site, except for a gear list. It only mentions a speedlight. But I grew up around those industrial areas. A lot of them shut down and have been converted into public parks, symphony halls, etc...
The colored lighting is actually permanently in place. Do a search for lapadu and you'll see.
