Mark got some light art photographs before, but the new ones in this gallery are so spectacular that they look like frames from a sleekspanky superhero movie. Except that, instead of using computer effects, these are done in real time.

Like Picasso's light drawings, the photos by Lapp-Pro are created using a camera with an open shutter. But instead of just using a simple light, these people use a variety of lighting sources that make their photos look from another world. Another world where dorks fight with actual balls of plasma instead of just pretending to do it while making whishwhoosh sounds with their mouths. [Lapp-pro.de via Daily Mail]
