Photographer Andrew Hall is fascinated by patterns. In a series of long exposure shots that he calls Orbs, Hall rigs up multi-coloured LED lights to spin in circles on different axes. His light paintings result in wonderfully colourful and hypnotizing three-dimensional patterns that look like electrons spinning around an atom. He says all the shots are produced in a singe exposure, with no retouching at all. Have a look at some of Hall’s atomic orbits after the jump.
