How 360º Lightpainting, “Bullet Time” Photos Are Made

We have featured Eric Pare and the timecodelab before when we showcased their Liftoff 360º project (and a White Feather light painting tool). Today they released a beautiful documentary showing what goes on in a production of a 360º bullet time light painting.
