The result is surreal, as if bioluminescent alien creatures were gliding on the surface of the water. “Using LED lights with custom color patterns and long exposure photography, I’m able to tell the story of movement.”
“This technique reveals beautiful light trails created by paths of familiar objects. Comment on Facebook These light trails have not been artificially created with Photoshop and represent the actual paths of the objects.”
Another project takes light painting to a more urban setting, with painter Diliz capturing faces in sparks. Long exposures capture nothing but the lights as the subjects move against the backdrops, erasing the kayaks and the humans piloting them. “I’m fascinated with capturing motion through time and space into a single photograph,” says Orlando.
