Lately I've been seeing some really incredible photos with mysterious light orbs, lines, patterns, etc. Intrigued by how they did it, I started to investigate further. All images involve a long exposure and some sort of object that creates light. The combinations seem to be absolutely endless.
Flying sparks are made by burning steel wool and spinning it on a metal leash. Yeah, that sounds scary to a chick with lots of hair.
Experimenting in my future.
But this guy, is by far, the king of lightpainting. Straight out of the camera shots most of the time.
