Light Painting Stick of 288 LEDs
The premise is simple, long exposure photography plus addressable LED strips = magic
So I enjoy photography, I also enjoy RGB LEDs, I also enjoy raspberry Pis. This project was to scratch all three itches at the same time.
The WS2812B LED Strip (2.5 metres long), is connected to a raspberry Pi, which flashes the “columns” of an image, one column at a time.
When this is “dragged” across the frame of a long exposure image, it projects the image to the sensor of the camera, and creates some wonderful looking photos.
I started this project within a few days of leaving my previous residence, and let’s just say not to mix an obsession with packing stuff into moving boxes.
My “Love” portrait of our old flat is a tribute of that place where my wife and I shared many happy memories.
Photorealistic imagery is possible
