The Motions of Kayaking and Canoeing Captured with Long Exposure and LED Lights

These beautiful images come from Canadian artist Stephen Orlando, who has always been fascinated by movement and human activity. He creates these images by using a special set of paddles with LED lights, and long exposure photography. The results are simply magical.

The trick behind Stephen’s amazing photos is the long exposure shutter opening: the lens captures whatever light is most visible, and the path of the paddles is shown while the kayak itself disappears. I love how you can imagine in your mind the precise movements the kayaker must have been making, just from looking at the lights. Very cool!
