Sparkler$: An Animated GIF Project

Toronto photographer Ryan Enn Hughes has been experimenting with animated GIFs and this is his first project, Sparkler$. To create this, Hughes set up a black set in his studio, and blacked out his windows to block outside light. The subjects jumped, painting with sparklers, as Hughes shot with a DSLR camera on an eight-second exposure.  A flash froze the subject briefly at the beginning of the exposure, and so only the light trail appeared for the rest. The photos were sequenced in post-production to create the animated GIFs.
