Ontario-based photographer Stephen Orlando continues to create spectacular studies of movement through light paintings. Using LED lights and slow shutter speeds, he has captured the energetic motion of music and the repeating gestures associated with aquatic travel. Now, he has expanded on the latter with a new series of water-related works.
Orlando’s new kaleidoscopic collection of photographs traces the movements of canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards with dazzling displays of light. To get each shot, Orlando attaches Technicolor LED lights to the paddles of the vessels. He then takes long exposure photographs of the rowers in motion, capturing the light’s path, revealing the paddle’s pattern, and resulting in a one-of-a-kind work of art.
