Painting With Light

I tried a technique called "painting with light" tonight for the first time.  All you need is a dark room, flashlight, tripod, long exposure and some imagination.  Just use your flashlight like a brush and "paint" the scene.  In the image below I used a piece of red cellophane over the end of the flashlight.  The possibilities are endless...

Gear: Canon 40D + EF50mm f/1.4
Exposure: 25s @ f2.8, ISO 100
