Seeker states in his comments that lasers are difficult to control. I realized that I wouldn't be able to get precise streaks if I handheld the laser, so I invented a little device which made painting more regular.

Thanks for the comments and votes. Here's the little secret: I glued the laser to the centre of a handheld fan, so the laser's point would rotate in a smooth circle.

Brilliant idea attaching it to a fan. The results are fabulous.

It is my humble opinion that you outdid the shot you were inspired by. I believe this is a much better shot.

this should have gotten the blue - excellent shot.

A beautiful piece of art - irt's existentialism is remarkable alongside its juxtaposition within the realms of aesthetic visual alignment in a very real sense. Its presence in a hall of fame would be further justified for its inclusion in a gallery of esteemed works.

Great tits.

This is fantastic! I'd also love to hear more about your invention. Congrats on the Red.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2007 12:15:31 AM
You pulled it off! I've so badly wanted to do a shot like this (Seeker's shot has bee in my faves for a long time), but my own experiments showed what you mention - that painting parallel lines is very, very hard. Can you describe your invention a little more?

Congrats on the ribbon and executing this so well!

Delightful; subtle, sophisticated, abstract but not completely so. The blue adds a nice touch here. 9

Interesting image ... appears that model is lit with light filtering through something like a venetian blind rather than with a handheld moving light source, but still an interesting graphic effect.

Very cool shot. I hope it scores well.

06/09/2007 09:38:02 PM
love the use of these lines to outline the body - very creative execution of light painting
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/09/2007 08:09:08 PM
interesting! Was that a moving light source, painstakingly moved by hand again and again?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice shapes and its a nice angle for the light Perhaps a warmer colour could have been better, good luck
