If you haven’t ever heard about ‘light painting‘ by now, you’ve probably lived on another planet (or you don’t read my blog! You bad bad boy!) or you simply haven’t come across anything that caught your eye yet…
Well wait no longer, because the following video shows you exactly what light painting is about.
I think it’s a creative idea… However their complicated way of explaining what they did kinda makes it look harder than it actually is (which is never a good thing).
Anyway: seeing the above reminded me about a little experiment I did about a year ago. I created a Flash movie that accesses the webcam and does some bitmapdata magic. The result is realtime light painting!
“What does that look like?”
“Can I try?”
Yes you can! Just make sure you’re in a dark room. 😉
Feel free to show some of your results!
