This is the story of how I managed to take half a million pictures of contemporary dancers in the dark using light-painting, stop-motion and bullet-time techniques. Technical constraints and limitations of working in a 360 degree environment narrowed the visual possibilities and brought to life the LightSpin signature and flow after months of trials and errors in complete darkness.
