Impermanent Sculptures By Vitor Schietti Are A Treat For Your Eyes

By -

Meet Vitor Schietti, Brazilian photographer, who makes use of fireworks and long-exposure photography for creating his ‘Impermanent Sculptures’. For curious readers; the effect was achieved by manually waving fireworks followed by some post processing and combining of about 12 shots into a single image. The end result looks nothing short of marvelous.

Schiettie said, “The series is the result of several years of research on long exposure photography, and the usage of ND filters was vital to find a perfect balance between the fading twilight and the brightness of the fireworks. Only a few attempts were allowed per day, since the time frame during which this balance is possible is very narrow (30 to 50 minutes).”

“There’s no such thing as talent, there’s only hard work,” Schietti says.Impermanent Sculptures By Vitor Schietti Are A Treat For Your Eyes
