Image for a challenge using plain white paper. Using long exposure and torchlight to light the area, this is what I came up with.

exp – 8 seconds
iso 80
FL 31mm
eveready torch with piano certificate held in front to diffuse the torchlight, only other props include sticky tape and one sheet of plain white photocopy paper, and lots of patience. At one stage, a rotating multi-coloured disco light was involved, but this was soon abandoned due to the law of physics/light not matching the image in my head :(

    all the better for not having the strobe lighting, I think!
