    I went to a college tester day and had a look at A-level photography and we did some light painting there. I really enjoyed it and want to do more photography similar to that. Other than that one time I haven't done any proper light painting but want to in the future. May take some practice tho. Im excited to see what other people have done tho. I'll keep an eye out for posts on this thread

    Most people on here do, ok some places are well lit, sometime can just use whats there just use whats there (when theres security on site cant go waving a torch around), but then for when the place is dark the torches come out and light the scene. Look at the drain reports on here for examples (some are more light painted than others (mine usually have thought put into where the light is painting, though mine are far from the best)), but its not just drains Ive light painted bits in old mills etc

    I been looking on amazon at some colour torch's and today, I went around some charity shops and got some Steel wool, dog lead and a whisk, to try out some light Painting, just to get it right, before I head out some where like Shorham cement works, that I think would look really nice, with difference lights

    I think we need to be clear - what you're calling light painting isn't what 95% of us call light painting.

    I think to most people it's getting an even spread of white light across a whole frame, rather than colouring things in.

    dog lead and a whisk?

    I really wouldn't be messing about there, it's hard enough as it is currently.

    I have not tried it fully on mine yet, but most (if not all new) Olympus OMD mirrorless cameras have a function called Live Composite.

    Basically you open the shutter and it only adds new light to the picture until you close the shutter again. I have tried it in the garden and it works well, shine a torch on a single object and it gets added to the picture, item that are already lit, say a light on all the time, just get recorded once. Moslty used for star trails, car light trails and fireworks.

    Quite a good explanation here - http://www.ayton.id.au/wiki/doku.php?id=omd:live_composite
