Somewhere over the Rainbow

Light-write the perfect rainbow when writing with light! You might be thinking it's something of a feat for you to have, but all you need is a little bit of your imagination and it'll be as easy peasy as lemon squeezy!

So many people have asked me about my light-write rainbows. Basically the question is usually about how the rainbow colors stay in line with each other and don’t get mixed up or weird gaps. It is true though that when light writing rainbows with individual flashlights with gels, it is hard to judge where you should put each line. Well I solved that s**t, but good.

So I got myself 6 LED flashlights. Don’t complain about the price cuz I got them at the dollar store so you do the math. Anyways, I take my extra colorsplash gels and tape one over each flashlight. Next thing I do is use some tape and wrap the tape around the flashlight then WITHOUT RIPPING THE TAPE, I attach the next flashlight and wrap the tape around the two lights, then I add another light to the group and wrap the tape around all three, then I add another and another. When I am done I have one giant flashlight strip. You can hold onto one light and the whole group stays together. Now once you turn the lights on and do your rainbow light writing the rainbow stays in one nice piece and it is quick and easy. So get out your long exposure cameras and put yourself somewhere over that rainbow.
