Colourful Long Exposure Photos of Glow Sticks Dropped Into Waterfalls

Photographers Sean Lenz and Kristoffer Abildgaard of From the Lenz have come up with a brilliant light painting concept that produces gorgeous results. For their project titled Neon Luminance, they dropped glow sticks into waterfalls and then used long exposures to capture the bright and colorful trails as the sticks were carried down stream.

Other features of the landscape were lit using road flares, headlamps, and moonlight.

If your wondering how the duo managed to get such bright glows from their glow sticks, it’s because they used high-powered ones manufactured by Cyalume (The sticks can be purchased for about $1 each over on Amazon).

After dropping the sticks into various waterfalls in Northern California, they used exposures ranging from 30 seconds to 7 minutes to capture the movement of the sticks. For variations on the theme, they used different colored sticks and bundles of sticks strung together.
