How to

Some folks have asked how I did the light painting photo that is the cover for this collection. I love to teach and help others learn so I wanted to share this post for anyone who is interested. I started with the LED lighting kit similar to this one you can get from Amazon:

I  bought the wood pieces from Home Depot and glued them in the T shape. I previously had a 12V Li battery pack but you can also get that from Amazon. I used adhesive velcro tabs to attach the controller and battery to the back as you see in the photo and Voila you're ready to create some amazing photos of your own!

I'm happy to answer any questions! Now go create! :-)

Hmmm The IR receiver seems a bit big. On my kit it's just the photodiode so it's easy to secure to the back. But there's a ton of kits like that online.
