Long Exposure Photographic Light Art


Programmable LEDs attached to people and various objects can reveal motion in a whole new light. Photographer Stephen Orlando uses long exposure photography to capture the light trails of moving objects resulting in photographic light paintings.

Stephen has beautifully captured the motion of a variety of objects in a variety of settings, from musical instruments being played to kayak paddles along a river to ski poles down a ski slope.

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.
