What would it be like to see motion? Ontario-based photographer Stephen Orlando has been wondering about it for years before he decided to find an answer to this question. Always fascinated with human movement, the photographer came up with a brilliant way to make motion visible to the naked eye.
He chose water sports - kayaking, canoeing, and swimming to be more specific - because of its repetition, strength, and water's ability to reflect light. By attaching LED light sticks to kayak paddles, people, and racquets, Orlando managed to record motion on the surface of water. Captured light races create a very unique effect that highlights the beautiful patterns of motion.
