Light Mosaic: Piece Out and LPWA project

Inspired by the work of Brian Matthew Hart and Chris Bauer, I dabbled in creating some light painting mosaics.  First I did a few by hand, then I wrote some software to help visualize and assemble it real-time. After talking with Jannis Sid, founder of this blog, I decided to create a new collaborative mosaic system that would enable light painters from anywhere in the world to team up and create mosaics.  This system would take an image, slice it into smaller pieces, and let registered users request pieces to work on.  Once they had completed their pieces they...

Colorado Perseids Meteor Jam Report

In July of 2016, I recruited Nancy Nguyen and Theresa Lopez to join me in the Colorado mountains to shoot the annual Perseid meteor shower, light painting-style.

It was three weeks after the LPWA meet-up at Mt St Helens, which Nancy and I also attended. We had driven for that, 19 hours each way, and were home for four days before we hit the road for steamboat springs, Colorado, to go...

Flashlight Review: Generic Cheap Zoom Light

Introduction Whether we like to admit it or not, many light painters have purchased cheap zoom lights at some point, before we knew any better. There is no question that it is possible to light paint with very cheap flashlights, but how do these cheap zoom lights compete with higher quality budget flashlights when it comes to value for money? There are many cheap zoom lights available, and the one chosen for this review is produced by a Chinese OEM manufacturer, and is available under lots of different brand names (half of which end with “fire” or “tac”). This...
