    Default Light painting query

    Those who have tried this technique, I was just wondering....

    What are your light sources?
    Am trying to find some new light sources to play with.
    So far I've used flashlights(most common), keychain lights, LED finger lights, and that glowing fan you can buy at Sentosa.

    Have tried using a child's toy top(but that didn't work so well), a light rod thingy(the red ones used to direct traffic) and even tried using my ceiling light..which of course, can't move so I just moved(spun) the camera instead.

    Has anyone tried something other than the ones listed above? If so, I would be grateful if you list them down here. Would love to test them out.

    Originally xenon lights was use, with optic cable different shape of light head, and filter.

    expensive $$$ and heavy to move around

    now led ligh is the best. easy to carry, cheap cheap to play with

    Done it. Thanks for the input. Waiting to try out the blue lasers as soon as I can afford to buy them.

    LED is perfect, specially when you want to do detailed shapes. The finger LED lights are perfect for drawing just about anything.

    Tried it once. Wasn't too happy with the way it turned out. Guess I didn't use it correctly. Any idea how to trace over an object with sparklers?
    For instance, if I have a glass, I can easily use an LED to trace the edges of the glass. HAd seen a pic before where a guy used sparklers to trace out a SUV car. I tried doing my metal table...ended up burning the edges :P
