Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit

The other day I was playing around with my camera and I noticed that if I am in a dark room and I use a slow shutter speed (around 4 - 8 seconds) and a really high F value (think it was on F22), I could write my name in the air with a torch and because of the long shutter, it'd take the picture with my name written in light.

Anyway, everyone probably knows what I am on about, but I was wondering if there's a name for this technique. I want to Google for tips on how to get the best results and see other people's photos but I don't have a clue what to search for!

Thanks in advance!
Yess! That's exactly what I was looking for!

Thank you both very much!
