    All you need is a long shutter speed, a small light source (flashlight, LED, etc), and some time to mess around/experiment.

    I can do maybe some circles and straight lines. I admire people who can do those shots.

    Great pictures, but the article makes no sense.

    I have messed around with this type of thing, but nothing this ambitious. I like experimenting with the textures and things in a more abstract way, which I guess is different. This is the kind of thing I played around with a little when it was too cold to go outside for night pictures:

    At what point does "light painting" become "light graffiti?" When it's trendy?

    Hehe, I just posted some 'light graffiti' pictures. http://thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=124723

    These were random though, I would really like to plan 'em out, looks very cool. Mine were very simple also, All i did was take 30 second shots at 10:00PM while in a car moving the camera around.

    so I've never tried this until tonight, when i read this post... maybe someone can tell me how to fix this.... I put the camera on Aperture mode.. and i set the f to 22 (highest it will go) i take the picture, and the light works fine... i'm able to do the drawing.. however, my face is all blury... now.. I looked in the mirror, and i don't seem to have a blury face.. so it's obvously something i'm doing wrong...

    Wow that's a cool shot. I really got to try this some time. But I'm also hoping for a thunder storm so I can take some lightning pictures.
