    Hello tried some more lightpainting and this is what i come up with...

    setup: I took a dvd and fixated it (with the backside facing up) on a stand in front of a black backdrop. I coated the dvd with some detergent mixed with water. I used around 10 secs shutter and aperture f/4 and then painted with a red, white or green led-diode

    Anyone doing light-painting who can give some hints'n tips?

    And as always if giving Critique Please Be harsh you wont help me if you ain't pointing everything thats wrong

    I thnk it would look better without the streak. Cover the light with your thumb or turn it off until youre ready. Put your camera on a long timer and it will give you time to walk to your subject and prepare to paint. Here is one I did not too long ago. You can se I turned it off and back on for the eye.[​IMG]
