Our talented Mattawa photographer Danny Turcotte (Catch-Light.ca) captured Big Joe in a new way at night with some flashlights and some light painting.
There is no photoshop in this photo. It was done in the dark with his camera on a tri pod taking a long photo and as it takes the photo he used flashlights and sparks spinning in the air which creates this effect. He actually ran around creating the image.
“You can see me standing there spinning the fireworks which gives the photo scale to show how tall Big Joe is as he stands towering above me—-I think he just paddled down the Ottawa…..”
You can even see the 3 crosses in the background!
