Motion Exposure

Dec 4, 2014

Motion Exposure, a photography project by Stephen Orlando, captures movement patterns with light.

I’m fascinated with capturing motion through time and space into a single photograph. 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. These light trails have not been artificially created with Photoshop and represent the actual paths of the objects.

The above shows kayaking movements, which is just one of many activities including canoeing, soccer, karate, and bike polo. See it all in the Orlando’s galleries. [via Colossal]
