Introduction: Light Drawing / Painting - Because It's Just Cool

Picture of Light Drawing / Painting - Because It's Just Cool

I am taking liberties as to the pre-stated nature of slideshows to deliver "photos of what you made or did".

I finally got my camera into long exposure mode. Please take into account it's only 8 secs max exposure, so I had limited time to work. I did manage to get a few good shots though.

Just for those who missed it.

Check out how to-

Painting with Light

Write or draw with light because T3h_Muffinator is just awesome.

Animate with Light

LeD Drawing Pens

That is all you need to know to create some images that will have even the most hardcore Photo shop fans drooling.

This is pretty good for only an 8 second exposure. I usually use 30 secs, but when the wife wants to draw we've gone as high as 2 minutes.

Thanks for sharing!

This is my go of doing repeated 8 second exposures to one of my tracks. hope it gives you a few ideas.

It was done using my iPhone as the light source. (i picked a photo from my pictures to get a particular colour and waved it about)

rudimentary but effective i thought.
