    I recently showed my 6 year old son Jack how to "light paint". Setting my GF1 to shutter priority and setting a 6 second shutter speed, he created this. Funny thing is, now whenever we're walking around after dark, he asks for my camera. :smile:

    These are some Halloween lights strung up in someone's yard. GF1/20mm Pany/CC welcome of course (I'll pass it along to Jack). :rofl:

    Haha looks great. You can try longer exposures and different light colors. I really enjoy light painting.

    For example, this one was done with a 50 second exposure (yeah I know, couldn't get it dark enough in my bedroom :tongue:)
