    sweet, I would love to be able to take photos like this!

    How is it actually done ? :)

  • Thanks! was fun. I used the AV setting on the camera with with ISO 200, Tingsten light balance and +1 AV Darkness.. Then i just waved a torch around that had two settings, one normal and then another little finder light that made the orange streaks, The blue came when i enhanced the contrast. But its quite tricky cos you have to wright everything backwards! But its fun, just mess around and try different settings and light things! :)

    This is so cool!! One thing you could do is just reverse the image on the computer so you could write things forwards.. I really want to try something like this though :)

  • ah of course! Genuis, i didn’t even think of that, here i was doing it all backwardsand confusingly!! hahaha! Thanks!! You should defiantly try, its a lot of fun, its like drawing with your eyes closed as you have no idea what the final result will look like until the photo has finished taken! go wild! :) Thanks Alice! :)
