    I tried to take a picture of a completely dark room, lighting it up with just a pocket flashlight. The technique basically consists of taking several pictures and then adding them up.
    I describe the method thoroughly here: http://www.ilghila.com/articles/2006/lighting_with_flashlight.html
    I show an example of application here: http://www.ilghila.com/articles/2006/lighting_with_flashlight_ex.html
    Any comment or suggestion to improve the technique is welcome. Thank you.

    Cool concept but I'd perhaps use 1 image with a long exposure and try "painting the walls" or something to perhaps get a more interesting image.

    That is a long, excruciating way to take a picture that looks like a cheap on camera flash.

    i don't see the point. I could also take a picture of a dog by taking several smaller pictures of a dog and then adding them up... but it's easier just to put it all in one frame. Only difference is, the dog photos might actually be interesting, while this:

    Is not.
