Light is such a crucial element in photography, and quality lighting is usually a core component of any photograph. However, it’s possible to do so much with light if you get creative with motion, brightness, and light sources.

When using long exposures, it’s possible to capture light trails while keeping dark objects, such as yourself, from appearing in the photo. And it’s also possible to do light painting using motion or layer lights on top of each other if you can pull it off.

Here’s some photos that feature 360 degrees of light by spinning in photographs:
