Long Exposure Light Painting

By kil1k
A small tutorial i finally had the time to achieve...
I know it's a limited thing to really understand all the things involved in the long exposure light painting process, but i hope it can give you some pieces to make your own artwork.

Link to the ^superkev news about "knowing light" : [link]

Ps: sorry for the possible grammatical and spelling english mistakes ^^;

do you put the color cover on top of the flashlight or the camera lens?

Reading this makes me want to try it. And I know someday I will. Though I may need to borrow someone else's camera.

woah i had no idea this was the way to actually take those kind of shots. i kind of worked in reverse. the light would be in a certain place. usually lights i had no way of controlling. and since i couldnt move the light i would shake the camera and move it in all sorts of ways. im going to try this out some day. very good tutorial.

i've tried this before, it sort of worked and looked reasonable, but this just helps to know that what i'm doing is sort of right
