All You Need is a Ceiling Fan, a Light Source, and Tape
Tonight I was camping out in my 5 year old granddaughter’s room, lying on a mat on the floor.
I looked up and saw the ceiling fan.
I remembered a youtube demo of light writing. Have been working on light writing at school with the students and thought I’d experiment.
Maura said the fan made her too cold so it was not a lengthy experiment. Not as many variations as I would have liked to try. I think it would work well with regular glow sticks. She liked the way the photos looked, though. Crazy Grandma.

You need a darkened room.
Set your camera on bulb setting ( or long exposure)
A tripod would have been useful. I just braced it so it’s soft focus.
I used a Flashing/Glowing White Lighting Stick and tried three different settings.
You need some tape (that won’t damage the paddle) to attach the light source to a ceiling fan blade.
Here are the Light Write Experiment results
Here is one I did at school with LED Christmas Lights, trying to make and intentional circle shape.
