Missing Info
02/05/2009
~ joyce

Lovely, as far as it goes...but What's missing is info about exposure timing. How long does one leave the shutter open for best results? How fast to move the light source? Sure, we can experiment, and we did/do -- but I'd expect a tutorial to at least mention this important element of light painting. I know, I know: what do I expect for two bucks! Still...

Love this idea! I want more! Would love to see a video on how to do LED animation. How would that work?
