    I've always been amazed at some of the light painting images I have seen. Any suggestions for an inexpensive way to do this for a beginner? Links to how to guides would be appreciated. Here are some pretty good examples of the style I would like to eventually attempt.

    well it's not really too hard, just start messing around with long exposures at low iso's (200) full moonlight works great, then just get a few colored lights and start painting things. This is one of those things that you just have to mess around with to learn anything, of course I'm assuming that you know how to use your camera in Manual mode...you are familiar with the mode right?
