In July, 2014, a team of light painters from East Coast Light Painting created a long-exposure photograph of 200 glowing orbs in a field in Virginia.
To create the orbs, the group collaboratively developed a spinning light tool.
During the 1,651-second exposure, the team fanned out to create each of the 7-foot-diameter orbs.
The light painters were inspired by a 2011 photograph in which photographer Andrew Wells created a long-exposure image with 100 orbs.
According to the group, their 2014 photograph has earned a Guinness World Record.
