Sorry about the quality I just pulled these off face book.

Jjphoto have you thought about using a backing plate on the fluros so you don't get the ghosting? The light is quite a good effect using that as a method

The light streaks you see are behind the car, ie walking behind the car with the light facing the camera, and they create the highlights in the roof, windscreen, hood. In fact those 2 un-edited images where you do see the light (from behind the car) are also fully lit from the front and sides and you don't see any stray light from those even though I've walked directly in front of the camera. If you're not very familiar with auto light painting then have a look at http://photocornucopia​.com/1035.html (external link) which may help explain the above.

Those pics I put up are lit with a light box and walking past the car in the above method you described

For these I had the camera on a tripod, then used an off camera flash, and walked around the car with the flash while taking around 4 pictures, then stacking them in photoshop.

I use something similar to what has been posted but my light strip is LED light based (about 2 feet long). Here are some recent shots with the setup during some long exposures:

This thread is from 2009! :lol: Thanks for the updates, I've only light painted once this way, but I mostly just use strobes now.

You will need some sort of a strobe with softboxes. I have the Prophoto lights and the quality of the light is astonishing. But, you can get by with cheaper light stands.
