Photographer Denis Smith specializes in light painting, and to most, this technique may sound complex, but his latest series, titled “Liquid Light,” is designed to make a splash, literally. Simply put, Smith utilizes the camera’s intervalometer and sets an exposure of between 1 and 5 seconds. As the camera begins snapping, he stands in front of it and swings his tools around the water to create the effect you see above. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
“For the past 2 summers I have been spending time in the water with my light painting tools. It has been so much fun. Light painting has always been about getting away from daily life, being super present and expressing how I am feeling through movement. With the liquid light series, I could just let loose, splashing around like a kid,” Smith told PetaPixel.
