Tendrils of illuminated tree branches fall to the ground in fragile bands glowing in the eerie twilight. Vitor Schietti’s ‘Impermanent Sculptures’ is a dazzling series of images using long exposure photography to capture fireworks burning in trees at that magic hour.
They were taken in the Brazilian savannah, but due to the soft light necessary for these images there was not much of a window each day for taking them. The photos are a result of light painting that happened in camera with the addition of some careful post-processing, mostly layering several shots to get one strong image. The result is spectacular, and we think you’ll agree there is something truly magical about Schietti’s work.
