I really have a tough time getting a place to stay in Cologne / Köln (The whole city is packed with people – every corner seams to be taken. aaaaa) so in my misery I found two ways to air paint text using my iphone.
The first way was inspired by a story run on IDG.se were some french guys (I think) painted 3D models using their iPad – it looked cool and I though that I could do something myself but a bit simplified. First I searched for a suitable font which I cut into pieces – I then saved each piece as a picture and I made a slideshow out of them. I saved as a movie, exported to my iphone and put my DP2 on 15s and swiped the phone infront with a nice speed. So the R in Rytterfalk is really three pieces of JPG files, the middle part showed twice as it’s thick.
The I wanted to go further and developed my idea a little.. :
By making a long text and then pan it behind a tiny letter box hole I managed to make any text or picture come out like the picture above. Dp2 used for all shots.
Two videos for those who want to try!
Good luck! :)
