Cool. Your friend must be a robot! :) ;) I can't imagine any human being walking down those bumpy tracks and keeping such a straight line and such concentrically, perfectly-sized circles. Good job for you and your friend!

Let alone doing it while walking BACKWARDS !

thats a wicked shot you got there cnhoffma, you have done a great job to visualise what you wanted then did an awesome job executing it.

i love long exposure and light painting, i cant count how many nights i have spent shooting till early in the morning.

Very cool! Have you ever seen long exposures from a train that went by? Those are pretty insane, tons of light trails.

i was actually out one night shooting on the train tracks and i noticed a light on the horizon, it got a little closer and i realised it was a train!!!! I VERY quickly packed up my gear (tripod, lights, backpack and camera bags etc.) and got out of the way.

I quickly set up my tripod and snapped this shot as the train flew past.
not sure if i like it or not, it looks kinda cool i guess.

this is straight out of camera.

Wow that's sweet. I'd like to try to get a shot of a train passing. One thought was to hit it with a rear curtain strobe, but I'm judging that there's a LOT OF LIGHT coming from the train so I might have to rethink my idea a bit.

i see where your coming from with the strobe idea....i'd love to see your attempts.

you should definitly check out these two sites if you haven't already.

www.nightphotographer.​com (external link)
www.lostamerica.com (external link)

i found them to be very inspirational. they are excellent sites from a couple of very talented photogs (i think the photog from lost america is actually a member of POTN). hopefully you get a few cool ideas from them, i know i certainly did.

anyway, hope you like the links.

I know of Lost America. That guy does some pretty neat stuff, but he tends to shy away from having the light source appear on the image.

I check out nightphotographer and I like his stuff. He has a similar style to Lost America.

One guy that I like a lot tdub303 (external link). He's very inventive and does many styles of lightpainting. Another guy called artandsteel (external link). He does good stuff too. The flickr communities for light painting are fun to see what shots and contraptions they create.

thanks for the links, they are so cool, definitly a different style. im going to try more shots with light trails, instead of just lighting the subject.

im gonna go out and try to get one of those LED wands, they can make some pretty cool effects.

what sort of lights/torches do you use when shooting?

I have a mini-maglite, two LED flashlights and this contraption. I'm also building a second one that is blue right now.
