Flickr Friday: Light Painting With A Mobile Phone

Here is a light painting trial I captured by using an image on my mobile phone screen as a direct light source. I used Autodesk Sketchbook on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to create a simple image of blocks in red, green and blue. Running the Canon 1D4 on bulb with the Canon 24-70mm F2.8L lens I used an f18 aperture at 34mm focal length and this image was created with a 93 second shutter time.

The colors turned out a little odd in this one but it was a first test. There are some later images on my Flickr photostream where I used lighter shades of the colors that looks more vibrant. My intent is to add this technique into images with a subject or even add some dynamic mechanical system to create some interest and order to the picture.

Flickr Friday: 8-Bit Light Painting

Here is a quick light painting image I made using an LED chaser bank. There are a few different chaser patterns the strip does and it results in different light paint pattern when you move laterally in the frame.

Flickr Friday: Blue Vortex

Here is a light painting image I made a few weeks ago I call ‘Blue Vortex’. I used a string of blue LEDs in two ways to make this image.

Playing Catch-up: YouTube And Flickr

Apparently I had no posts this week…fail! Here’s a double or nothing special. Something from YouTube and something from Flickr.

First a little test video using a HobbyKing ‘Wing Camera’ that I will be using to do some race cam type videos for Living Room Raceway.

And from my Flickr Photostream some of my light painting as I promised a while ago. More light painting to come with as I make some light painting tools.

Flickr Friday – Wormhole

Here is a picture from my favorites by Stephen Humpleby. This one is a Wormhole looking thing that has been light painted. I think I know how this was done so I want to give it a go myself.

Flickr Friday – My Light Painting First Attempt

I have noted in a couple of posts I have an interest in light painting. Sometime last year I did have a go after being inspired by some light painting spirography I saw on Digital Photography School (there’s Darren Rowse with the inspire part of his mantra again…it really does work). Here are a couple of the pictures I took.
