Hey everyone,

I have had a lot of questions about what type of lights i use for light painting. Lets start with flashlights.
www.dorcydirect.com is a great site to get flashlights. i would suggest the 220 lumen focusing beam, 500 lumen spotlight, and 200 lumen tactical. They are durable and affordable and have a lifetime warranty on the led. Snoots are always good to use with flashlights. i save my empty toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls to place on the end of my flashlights. That's the cheapest snoot i have found though if you want to spend the money you can purchase pvc tubes and cut them size. There are many techniques you can use with your cardboard snoot. example: if you pinch the end of your snoot and tape the pinched part together with electrical tape you will have 2 small openings. that allows you to create a cigarette smoke effect if pointed at your lens.  result- www.flickr.com/photos/drtongs/…

In this set all lighting was done with Dorcy flashlights. www.flickr.com/photos/drtongs/…
it's just an example of creations done with Dorcy only.

When it comes to LED orbs there are a couple different tools. First is the easiest route, purchase battery powered LED string lights. I get mine from www.littlebrightlights.com/sit…. when you have your string lights, unravel them take 75% of the LED's, bunch them up systematically to where the LED's are now the tip of your cord, wrap electrical tape around them. then remove the rest of the lights. if you get the string lights that cannot be removed place black tape around the lights. turn it on and start to swing.

the other LED orb tool is a DIY. you can purchase single LEDs at radioshack for a couple bucks a piece. depending on the brightness you want depends on how many leds you want to use. 10 leds is a good starting point. buy some speaker wire, a switch, 2 9v battery connectors, and rca connectors. Here is a tutorial to get you started.

I hope this helps everyone out to create some killer LP photos.
have fun!!!

Sometimes I get on here and see that the pending submissions have been "expired".

Is there anyway to extend the time limit before the deviations expire? If there isn't, would anyone like to be a moderator?

I have submitted four Light Art photos to this group on two occasions and all of them were never considered. They all expired. I requested to know why and was never answered. I can understand if you  don't like my art, what I can't understand is why the outright RUDE behavior of letting the works go to expiration and never responding to a request to know why. 

The admin of this group does great light art work, we have different styles and could never compete with one another, so I just don't understand the negative and rude behavior I have received. I don't have a problem leaving this group, the world is a big place. I just don't like leaving without knowing what it was I did or didn't do to cause the situation. I'm sure I didn't do anything but submit my art so the problem must come from somewhere else.

I don't know if I replied to you yet. But I gave up on this group also. If it is not dead, it is dead to me. It is too bad.
