if you want sharp lines, use a small LED of some sort to get something like this where you can draw around her. This one i used a small touch light with 3 LED's

You'd have to be very careful with it, but a lighter looks pretty nice in a long exposure shot.


I have a Canon Rebel XSi with the kit lens. I also have a cell phone camera that I am using in an exploration of the artistic possibilities of photography limited by extremely low quality equipment. If you have an old cell phone with a camera in working condition, and would like to contribute it to this project I'd be more than happy to accept such a gift.
