Photographic artist Luke Rasmussen uses long-exposure images to illustrate his climbing path through rocks.
Exterior. Desert. Night. In any movie scene, if a rainbow suddenly appeared, the movie would fall as something completely implausible. But without a doubt it is because they would not know the work of Luke rasmussen, a photographic artist who with his “long exposure experiments” manages to turn his climbing routes into multi-colored shows.

Photography and climbing, a combinable hobby.
Rasmussen, whose fondness for climbing rocks and boulders comes from having grown up in Utah, very close to the Colorado mountains, and is a sport that he has maintained for 17 years, perfecting the technique until reaching extremely difficult peaks, has created the series Climbing Inspire, taking advantage of programmable LED lights that you attach to your body, your camera's remote control, and "scale as fast as possible to get the fluid look" you want.
How does Luke Rasmussen do it?
It has two types of photography: open the shutter and close it when it reaches the top, but this only works for short climbs, of less than ten minutes, changing color its LEDs every 2 seconds automatically; Or, when the rock formation requires more time, open the shutter for bursts of 30 seconds, manually varying the color himself, and then stitch everything together with Photoshop.
