    Are there tutorials 'out there' to teach you things like this, or is it something you've self taught? I wouldn't know where to start :confused:

    Does it cost a lot to set up, ie special lights etc?

    im all self taught and with only your imagination holding you back, anything can be possible. i wanted me and myself sword fighting with light beams in the same photo and i wanted to do it without photoshop. Alot of people told me this was impossible but i kept going and eventually got there. set ups can range from anything, i have lights on the end of a wooden stick to lights that are held together with gaffer tape.

    Seriously impressive. I saw a similar idea on flickr actually, but it was 2 different people having a lightsabre dual (I'll see if I can find it again). I really need to learn this kind of stuff. I have to admit, it's something that baffles me though. I can understand simple stuff like writing words, or like my turntable comp entry. But these, and your orb over water have my brain in knots (quiet Jim ;)) Great stuff, keep em coming :smashin:

    thanks, ive been away from the light paining for a little while and tried urban exploring etc but not ive come back to it... i justreally enjoy it and you can easily lose yourself in the night. I also like the comments and queris on things are done, if people are guessing then it makes me alot happier. There are other peoples work that my jaw drops at and i think how!!

    Cool shots! but I can see a lot of areas around all three circles where you haven't fully blackened the background.

    i'm not clear you've understood (sorry if you have!), where you've used the brush to blacken the background.. well see this image which exaggerates what I can see (to make it obvious for you too)

    12821353925_5b914a66e7_z.jpg

    it does distract, since I can still see it normally without turning up the brightness silly amounts.

    sorry if I'm just being picky, and you're happy with this.
