I took these photos last night, probably inspired by the dull and cloudy weather we have had for a while. I used various torches lying around the house.

I like it esp #2

I got to ask though,
Im assuming these are multiple exposures (since multiple colors etc..)
How did you merge them to make them look so good?

I tried something similar with smoke a while back and had it tinted in dif colors just as you have but I couldnt get them blended to look worth a crap to save my life lol.. I know I was doing something wrong in photo shop

hehe there's no multiple exposure trickery here, I just waved two torches for about 18 seconds and the third for the last 12 seconds. Timing, a bit of luck, I think it depends how slow or fast you move the torches. I used a blue led torch (the cheap ones that use aaa batteries), a krill light (a light that you could read a map with) and a colour changing christmas tree. Oh yes, random hand movements and I turned around a couple of times.
