We are pleased to inform you that a group of six Indian Light Painters broke a world record in the domain of light painting photography by creating 900 light orbs.The record, which was attempted on July 26, 2015, was recognized on January 9th, 2016 by Guinness Book of World Records.This record was previously set by a group of 12 from USA, who were all professionals, by creating 200 light orbs in the year 2014.
The group of these talented Indians, who on the other hand were all amateurs and hail from different cities across India, coming from different professional backgrounds, gathered at Ambala Cantt, Haryana to break this world record. The group also achieved an edge over the previous record holders in monetary term by investing much less in the process.
The group includes Ambala Cantt’s Satwik Sharma, Ankur Bansal & Sanchit Kapoor, Arun Pandit of Kullu, Shobhit Tiwari of Jaipur, and Jeswin Rebello of Coimbatore.
