Today we have something a bit unorthodox. We’ll be sharing the live view from KameraKind & Benjamin Von Wong‘s largest photographed Where’s Waldo? ever made. If you want the live on-location feed, just hit the jump. (a detailed account will follow in a dedicated post)

Photographer Alexander Morris wanted to add a photobooth as a fun addition to events.
While the pictures and long-lasting-memories that a photobooth creates are important, the looks of the booth are crucial to attract visitors to take photos. Alex did a spectacular job on the design side, without sacrificing any quality.
Here are some of the booth’s highlights: (yes, you can build one yourself if you follow closely).[Read More…]
Boutique carpenter Brian Grabski wanted to take moving shot of a set of drawers he built . To make things just a bit more interesting, had wanted some lilies to open up during the shot.
Well, you can’t just make lilies open, these things take time… So Brian hooked up with Peter Kerwin and Josh Van Patter to set up a time lapse dolly connected to an Arduino board, a camera and an intervalometer and let it roll for four days at a time during a 2 weeks shooting period.
Michael Ross is not only a talented photographer, he is also somewhat of a maker. If you don’t believe me check his Digital Light Wand and Programmable Orb Tool tutorials. His latest endeavor is a super functional Arduino based high speed trigger.
I did not play with the kit, but it seems that it is one of the most well thought and function rich triggers out there.[Read More…]
You know what you get when you cross programming and photography? Kick bottoms light painting. A year ago today we featured Michael Ross’s (a.k.a. TxPilot) Digital Light Wand. It is a wonderful Arduino based tool that creates pictures in mid air.
Well, Michael is at it again. Yesterday Michael released his tutorial for a programmable Orb. (click here if you need an orb primer).
Similarly to the wand, the Programmable LED Orb Tool (o.k. you are PLOT from now on)… so similarly to the wand, the PLOT takes any bitmap or jpg image and converts it to a pattern that Arduino can understand. [Read More…]
One of the more interesting things to see in this era (aside a healthy big mac) is an ongoing synergy between light painting and rapid prototyping platforms like arduino and NXT Lego sets.
The Lightplot, created by Ben Cowell-Thomas, is a light painting robot that started as an NXT experiment and evolved into a huge project involving a massive robotic arm, a animation to movement software and a tiny LED.
The software is cool enough to control both the camera shutter and the robotic arm to create wonderful light painting animations. (Kinda like sticking an LED strip on a telescope mount on steroids)
Here is a quick demo of its capabilities followed by a short behind the scenes video
If you’ve done any light painting, you must know the Orb. Usually you create an orb by rotating a string with a light at the end while doing a little spin. Round? yes! Perfect? No! What if you wanted perfect?
Hugo Baptista Took this to a whole new level by making his orbs with a drill attached to a Telescope mount. Here is his story about creating the tool. Isn’t it perfect?
James Bond! forget about Q, your next hyper camera will not come from MI6, it will come from an open source Arduino project.
Arduino tutorial creator Adafruit created an open source “spy camera” that uses an Adafruit SD card Adapter and a TTL Serial JPEG Camera to capture pictures. The internet integration is achieved via an Eye-Fi wireless card for storing the image.
