Using a slow shutter speed, photographer and physicist Kristian Cvecek captures incredible firefly trails like you’ve never seen. The fireflies appear like ghosts weaving their way through an enchanted forest.
Cvecek patiently waits between nine and ten o’clock at night to get his shots. They’re taken in a forest in Germany, near his home in Eriangan, near Nuremburg.

Abstract Camera-less Photographs by Gordon Douglas Ball
New York-based photographer Gordon Douglas Ball has taken the camera out of the equation to create a series of images that are made by exposing 35mm and 120mm to different light sources, saying he wanted to “make” photographs rather than “take” them. That he did, and in quite an impressive DIY style, sometimes working on his fire escape or kitchen stove top. He started experimenting with colored LED lights and let them leak onto the film, after which he wound the film back into the canisters to be processed.

With over 25 years in the business, Chicago-based photographer Barbara Karant is known for the artistic beauty that she brings to her commercial interior and architectural work. Room Sets is a personal project she crafted off and on for almost 20 years. […] The interiors were conceived from either a concept, emotion, or opinion Karant wanted to explore in an environment—some were built for a particular image, and others resulted from a re-purposing of an already existent set.
Kinda makes you think of The Science of Sleep, no?
