    Here is a technique that I read about in Digitial Photo Magazine.

    What you do is place the flower in a vase and set up your camera on a tripod. Focus your shot and then turn of the lights. Set the camera to long exposure , say 10 seconds, shine a maglite on the image and release the shutter. There are lots of creative effects you can get with this depending upon how you paint the subject with the torch while the shutter is open.

    Try it,, Its fun !!

    I have tried this, only not with this great effect. I actually saw a video clip of this guy doing that. It is such an amazing technique.

    Great job on yours!

    My desire in photography is to capture the essence of life, to make others catch their breath at the purity of the moment captured, I'm still working on that.

    great photos they came out very well. Also, another neat idea for light painting is when you do it with a lazer pen

    it's so nice to see that you read the articles and then take the time to try them...and on top of that...you share the technique with all of us - and I'm thankful you did.

    I'm saving this thread in my favorites to try one day!

    I really love how that first one came out!

    Oh, I completely forgot about this technique! I learned about it about 7 years ago in a photography class I took. Good shots!
