This is impressive: Montreal-based photographer Eric Paré of Timecode Lab has combined light-painting, stop-motion photography, and Matrix-like 360° "bullet-time" technique into one. In his series LightSpin, Paré captured half a million photographs using 24-camera rig and compiled them together into a contemporary dance move unlike anything you've seen before:
Every frame is lit by hand, one by one. Each picture has an exposure time of 1 second. The dancer has to stay still for that second ... then has 2 seconds to slightly move to the next position.
The light is made with a roll of neutral density filter on a blinking flashlight. During this project, I triggered the cameras over 20,000 times, for a total of half a million images.
