Genie.... Too Cool, how are you doing this??

Genie said...

Hi Bob!!!!!!!!! Man, I still can't believe you're going to China. Awesome.

I did this using an LED light that randomly flashes different colors. I tied the light to a black cord and wound it tight. Then I released the cord so the light spun as I swung the light in circles. The light was hanging just a few inches from the floor and the camera was pointed straight down. Most were done on an 8 second exposure.

I've been hypnotized.
Maybe I'll lose weight now.
Cool Genie.

Bob Johnson said...

Wow, very cool and creative Genie, I love your stuff.

Hi Patsi! Wouldn't it be cool if we could just stare at special, hypnotic images ten minutes a day and lose weight?

Thanks, Bob, as always, you are too kind. I really am dying to give hubby 100 minutes of Slooh for his birthday--too bad his birthday is so far away. Maybe I'll just surprise him.

Your a cool light painter Genie! I been looking into this to but haven't done anything but figure out settings. I want to light paint old buildings while capturing a starry night at the same time. You have motivated me to get on it! Thank you!! :D

Thank you OrOne!!!! Love your latest artwork!

Thanks Roger. Did you see that National Geographic issue where the guy did light painting on Stonehenge? It was genius! I'm dying to do some light painting ON something--LED swirls and squiggles are too easy. With my camera I only get 15 seconds. So I'm going to have to move fast if I want to paint something.
