Okay so this is really nerdy but I had a lot of fun making it. It's actually really easy to make a lightsaber in photoshop. The set up for this was simple and worked really well, I wanted a light to flare out the photo so I just put my flashgun about 1.5m from my camera and put myself halfway between the two. You can see the set up on my twitter.
Follow me on Twitter, I'll post set up shots onto there
