Small colored LED lights...
Oct 9, 2012

Anyone know where I can get some small LED lights where the light is colored for some Lighting Painting stuff?  Small as in keychain size.  I've skimmed through Meritline.com, but there are over 4000 hits.

Don't know where you live, but if you are here in the good, ole US of A...I'd try one of the home improvement chain stores like Home Depot or Lowe's. Alternatively, there's always the junk they sell at Fry's Electronics or your local Dollar Store.

Yeap, 99¢ Store. Go back where the toys are and look for LED wands.

Christma decorations are going on the shelves too. look for some battery operated christmas lights.

Ikea has a set for $2.99

This is the look I'm going for:

I need a single light, nothing on a strand, and would prefer it to be colored light, not white.  I attended a workshop of this guys and I'd like to play around with what he showed us.

The ones I found on Ikea for $2.99 were on a strand and won't work for what I want.

That picture was most likely done with a MAG-light, It is a small flash light, but bright. Colored gels were used to change the color of the light.

There are three separate images done one one frame. In a totally dark room, open the shutter, get the image with the flash of the subject 90 side light. Two mag-lights, one with red filter. one with blue filter. Make the second part of the image with a red light, make the third part with the blue light. Close shutter.

Techniques has been around for a long, long time.
