As you would already know, ‘Light Trail Photography’ is a type of long exposure photography. By keeping the camera shutter open for a prolonged period of time, light trails can be produced by moving lights across the frame. That is about a typical light trail photograph. But, what you are about to see is not just typical light trail photographs.
Vitor Schietti, a Brazilian artist and photographer creates amazing light trail photographs with fire sparks in his own way. Even though he is not the first one to create light trails using fire sparks, he invented a method that combines fire sparks and the natural environment during the twilight to produce a dreamy atmosphere. Have a look at his brilliant work below.

The time he has chosen, twilight time, adds much value to the photograph by creating a certain mood. Capturing a photograph like this is not a simple task, it takes a lot of planning and hard work (including climbing trees). And most of the time, several long exposed frames have to be stacked together to get the perfect output without any compromises. You can watch the video below to have an idea of the process behind this kind of shot.
