Light painting with drones
This week my dad forwared me an article about Reuben Wu’s photographs using drones. His photos are stunning - check them out.
They reminded me of a project I’d helped on years ago with some friends - which we’d not told anyone about - so here it is.
Back in 2012/2013 my friend Tim had the idea of using drones to paint with light. A really simple idea, but we’d not seen anyone do it before. We were excited. Together with another friend Henry we spent a few evenings hacking on some drones to see what could be done.
We struggled with the stability of the drones and ultimately didn’t take the project as far as we hoped - these are some of the shots from our experiments.
