Light-drawing and light-writing is getting a fair bit of attention. Take these two commercials (below) for Sprint (also seen on Marc Schiller’s blog). Creative don’t you think?
They remind me of Toben Seymour’s music video for the song Jubilee by the Willowz (below).
I’ve seen more and more light-drawing over the past month, and there are some excellent photographs on Lichtfaktor’s MySpace page.
Lichtfaktor gives the following tips on how to draw with light using your camera:
To get the best results you need a tripod.
The exposure should be around 10-30 sec. or longer if needed.
Stay in front of the camera and do your writing.
Set the camera to about iso100, and close your aperture as much as possible. This prevents over-exposure. If there is still too much light you might have to use a nd-filter.
Aaron at milienzo recently published another interesting article drawing attention to Lichtfaktor’s Flickr set.
And have you seen the Drag and Draw project from Philips? Now you can encourage your kids to draw on walls.
