Might I ask, how do you light paint without anything being seen in the final picture? I understand how light painting works, but I'm unsure about if any equipment was involved other than a simple light. Thank you. :D

There is no background or shot before that - this is ONE picture (thats the beauty of lightpainting)

Congratulation for the DD, it is well deserved in my opinion and I really have nothing add than what was already said: clever concept and well-executed, indeed.

hahaha this is so awesome! How did you do this? I've seen my friends play with their camera and write something with light, but to make an action stick figure and it doesn't seem blurry?
