My first tries for painting with light, I suppose they should go in this section, but be free to move them if it's the wrong one.
Painting with light should also be a very nice way to illuminate subjects, instead of shining right into the lens as ith these. I'll try that soon :)

Hope you enjoyed!

#3 is fantastic! The reflection off the bricks on the ground makes it look ver real! This is a really interesting idea -- I'll have to try it sometime.

I like them. I don't think any photo has made me smile in a long time but these did :)

Excellent. :)

One of the few niggles I have with my camera is that it's longest exposure is 4 seconds. :( Otherwise I would have given this a try long ago.

Great fun.

whoooohooooooo!!!! good to see that creative streak, my friend...I'll choose the first one,as my favorite, greenpeace and all...I like whales...and I love how you got his eye, the spout, in balance.. the 3rd one is probably technically superior..how'd ya get that shiny lite on the bricks, anyways?..incredible stuff...(I was just looking at your sunsets, and cows, too)...so good to see your work...put me down for number one on this series..and I will be looking for more!!!

Thanks for the kind words :)

the shine one the bricks on the third image is nothing i did on purpose. The difference with the other two photo's is that I got the timing a bit better i think. I moved the flashlight just a bit slower, so the painting shines more. That also causes it to reflect more off the bricks i suppose. I wonder if you could use this technique to write things on somewhere with indirect light as well... There's probably more subtle ways to use it, but its much fun to try it anyway :)

Very nice, how'd yo do it? (What light, where were you etc.)

I tried to do at home once, with a little laser. Didn't get as good results :P

Awesome shots. How many seconds were the camera set to?

Probably bulb... Looks like it might take awhile.

I've just come across this thread, and they're some great examples!

Basically the technique I'd use (although the author of these may have done it differently) would be to find a dark location, keep the shutter open for 30 seconds - or longer with a cable release in Bulb mode - then stand in front of the camera and literally draw the shapes using a torch. Obviously this requires significant trial and error, and I'm very impressed by what's been achieved here!
