Key Insights

  • 🙂 Light painting involves exposing the image sensor to capture light energy converted into electrical energy.
  • 🙂 The technique allows for the creation of unique images by adding light before closing the shutter.
  • 😘 CCD and CMOS are the main types of image sensors, with CCDs being uniform and low noise, and CMOS sensors having on-chip processing capabilities.
  • 🙂 Light painting can capture colors by mixing different light sources on the sensor.
  • 💁 CMOS sensors are preferred for compact devices due to their form factor and integrated processing.
  • 🙂 Light painting allows for creative and artistic photography.
  • 🙂 Light painting can be used for various applications, including capturing pregnancy photos.


Hey it's me Destin. Welcome to Smarter Every Day. So most women get pregnancy photos then a couple of months later look at them and say what the heck was I thinking, but I've decided to bring my wife here to a (wife) spooky abandoned warehouse. Yeah it is a spooky abandoned warehouse. And, there's a guy named Wes Whaley, and he is a light painter, ... Read More

Questions & Answers

Q: How does light painting work?

Light painting works by exposing the image sensor and adding light to it before closing the camera shutter, creating unique images as if painting on a canvas.

Q: What are the two main types of image sensors?

The two main types of image sensors are CCD (charge coupled device) and CMOS (complimentary metal oxide semiconductor). CCDs are uniform and have low noise, while CMOS sensors have on-board circuitry for individual pixel processing.

Q: Can light painting capture different colors?

Yes, light painting can capture different colors by using light sources of various colors and mixing them on the image sensor, creating a mixture of light that gets deposited on the pixels.

Q: What are the advantages of using CMOS sensors?

CMOS sensors are advantageous for their tight form factor, on-chip processing, and reduced need for auxiliary circuit boards, making them suitable for compact devices.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • The video introduces light painting as a technique where the image sensor converts light energy into electrical energy.

  • The process involves adding light to the sensor before closing the shutter to create unique images.

  • The video discusses the two main types of image sensors: CCD and CMOS, highlighting their differences and advantages.
