Street Art? Traditional? Photography? Yes to all. No digital means have been used on this image... what we're seeing is the recording of a clever technique that is wholly traditional in its essence, and true to the Street Art spirit. A trick to the eye that creates a momentary illusion carefully crafted and captured. Diamonds Light Stencil Colors by ~truemarmalade.

Diamonds Light Stencil Colors

I know this isn't really traditional art, but if I put it in photography or something then I'd just feel wrong.

This is something like 5 shots, parts of which are all combined into one.

Here's a set on flickr with all the photos I used to make this, and a process of how I do this light stencil thing; so quit asking!


This is definitely the coolest thing I've ever made, in my egotistical opinion.

2:31:30 AM Melanie Lehman: EVER
2:31:40 AM Melanie Lehman: I AM A GENIUS

Thanks guys :]

I'm building a bigger rig, for bigger light stencils.
