Introduction: Laser Art V2
Please Vote for Me in the Wicked Lasers Contest
Hello again Instructables. I redid my Laser Art Instructable because before I could only force the camera to keep the shutter open for eight seconds. Now, after looking through the settings on the camera, I found a mode that lets me keep the shutter open for up to a minute! On a Lumix (by Panasonic) Camera, the mode is called Scene Mode, and you select "Starry Night" in the menu. It will then ask you how long you want to keep the shutter open for. I found that the 30 second timing was the best for my drawings. I took 30 seconds to draw the picture, then had to wait another 30 for the image to load. These pictures turned out much better than the others. I was able to trace around objects in my room, and i found that the snowboard looks the coolest because of the blue light behind it. I also drew a better stick person, a flock of birds, and wrote instructables. The way I got the dots was by placing my finger over the laser while I stood in front of the camera. Then I just spelled out the word backwords. This is a great project if you have a laser, a camera, a tripod, and some time on your hands!
