Long exposure shots can create some pretty interesting effects. Light painting takes this idea and morphs it into innovative examples of ‘illuminated’ art. If you experiment with different light sources and treat them as ‘brushes’, the results can be awesome. Check out this artist’s Flickr photostream to check out how the images above were created.
The video above is a composite of many long exposure still shots and put together as stop-motion animation. An Arduino controlled stepper motor modulates the light patterns. A Bluetooth module is used to send commands remotely to the Arduino.
