Light Painting

Hm, it’s hard to ‘draw’ when you can’t see what you’re drawing when you’re drawing it. 🙂

  1. Did you use LED’s for this?

    • Nope! I used one of those rechargable flash lights, you shake it to recharge it, it’s kind of the shape and size of a mag light. I used it because it glows blue which I thought was appropriate. I might try a small blue LED next.

  2. Light drawing

    I used to draw stuff on my Apple //c green-and-black screen when I was 9: the great remanence of the phosphor on it made drawings “stick” for a few minutes and gradually fade away 🙂

  4. Amazing! Now what we need is to make sure the F-10 release name has a deep sea connection, and this would fit right in as a default wallpaper / screensaver.
