Behold the wonders of PixelStick
About this time last year, I bought the first piece of dedicated equipment (a boom system designed for taking motion photos of cars) for our growing automotive photography business. It’s proven a worthwhile investment. So as we prepare for 2016, we decided to buy another tool – this time the PixelStick – an innovative programmable light stick with surprisingly versatile capabilities. Our primary purpose for purchasing the PixelStick was to help illuminate cars during night shoots, but as we discovered it can do much, much more! Last night, we did our first trial shoot on two vehicles, and I must say I am quite impressed with our new piece of kit.
Essentially, the PixelStick is a six foot array of 200 RGB LEDs, a handle, and a controller. Right out of the box, the controller comes with a selection of patters you can use to create a wide range of stunning effects. But here’s the really cool part – you can make your own patters and even images to project using your PixelStick. For example, we’re headed down to Daytona this weekend to cover the Rolex 24 for Top Gear, so we created a selection of patters and images that would compliment some of the vehicles we may photograph in the garages – such as the white and blue pattern (above) to accent a vintage Shelby GT350 we’ll be shooting. All in all, we’re quite excited about the potential of the PixelStick. Stay tuned for more images!
