Abstract Photos of Light Streaming Through a Barn Door

Photographer Rick Giles‘ project Light features abstract long-exposure shots of light pouring in through the door of a barn. He tells us,

The shots were created in camera by moving the camera across the surface of where the light is penetrating the barn. This draws the light in, and depending on the movement of the camera, creates shapes on the dark interior of the barn. Sometimes in quite abstract formations breaking the light down into the hues of the season. Other times mirroring the complete landscape of the exterior onto the interior wall.

It’s awesome how the colors in the light offer a hint of what’s on the other side of the door.

    Meh. I won’t be rushing out to buy frames for the prints I’m not about to order.

    Cool Stuff. I love the vertical banding in the light, you can see differences in density due to small variations in the speed the camera was moved. I’m guessing the camera was moved then another exposure was made for the interior of the barn? Then a trip to photoshop? Love it.

    The hint of the outside world offered by the colors makes this project pop and indeed awesome!
