Dreams Don't Turn to Dust by hootalex Dreams Don't Turn to Dust by hootalex
Attempted some light painting while listening to music. When listening to the music all you really want to do is make dots!

Given 2011-06-04
Suggester Says: The atmosphere is brilliant and I think the execution is just fantastic with the way they've tried to capture and portray the concept. The title is fitting and there is a great magical air about this piece.

Vivid Dreams

Vivid Dreams:


Have you ever felt like you were part of your dream
You were playing your part of the most weirdest schemes

Dreams you were falling and wake up on the floor
Playing a sport and trying to score

Dreamed I ate a giant marsh mellow..... Woke up my pillow was gone
That dream for instants lasted way too long

Dreams that would scare the hell out of you
Of monsters and aliens and horrific ghouls

Dreams that you were running or flying on just couldn't move
Playing in a band with a rhythm and groove

Dreams that would make you feel like the King
Paired up with Elvis..... You thought you could sing

Dreams that you were hiding.... Running for life
Being chased by a pirate........ Gilding a knife

Vivid dreams can be scary or funny or partials it seems
You never can predict or plan your dream

I dreamed I was at the ocean walking in the sand
I awoke in the morning with a shell in my hand

That was the wildest dream that happened to me
Waking up and being that close to the sea.

Vivid dreams are so real that's true
A vivid dream....can become part of you.

Love this photo! Did you use small LEDs turning them off and on for the little spots? Howd you do the Larger sprites with flashes? Really cool :)
Reply
:iconhootalex:
hootalex Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013
Yep! For the small ones I put a piece of paper in front of the LED to soften it. The larger ones without the paper and turned on for longer.

Just a small LED. The kind that can clip onto things and that you can purchase at the dollar store. ^^
