Ooh, nice. What magazine?
And good luck with the pieces being accepted!
Thanks, I appreciate it! My university publishes it annually to highlight the arts and literary programs.
I've been taking a little break from my art work over the past few weeks starting the new semester, but I've been hard at work rigging up a prototype for something I've wanted to get into for a long time.
LED night photography lighting prototype
This is a prototype I wired up of a lighting tool for night photography. In the future versions, RGB and white LEDs will be used and a controller to switch colors. I'll also add adjustable brightness and a variable strobe effect for a variety of uses and options.
You might also notice the wrapped up thumb as a result of half of an x-acto blade slicing through it. Safety first, use your head. Bitches get stitches, the DIY man gets his superglue and duct tape
It's a cheap build, uses very little power and creates little heat. The lights work in extreme environments and you can't ask for much more.
It's not my work but if you want to check out some awesome examples that inspired me to do this since high school, check out Lost America.
