Light painting is a blast. There's a lot to be said for drinking beer and spinning orbs in an orchard or swinging flaming metal around your head under a waterfall in the middle of the night.
Lately my orbs have started to shape up and I'm getting a little bit better with the lighting (now if we could just get a clear night with a full moon around here). Thanks to the talented people linked below whose light painting has inspired me. Thanks. This orb's for you. Check out their photostreams and be amazed.
