What do you all use to light paint? I'm loving the sense of motion El wires gives you!

Thanks...the only thing done to this photo was boosting saturation with red. Other than that, this is a single long exposure.

i taught painting with light for several semesters and though i never delved into enough personally to get that good i did have one student that really took to it. her work can be viewed here:

one of my college professor's also used the technique extensively even back in film days. did alot of creative portraiture. his work can be seen here:

and finally, back in the days of film i was a big fan of View Camera magazine and they featured an artist by the name of Berthold Steinhilber who did some phenomenal landscapes with the paint with light technique. they had a great article on him in the Feb 2000 issue where he spoke about his tools and techniques to get his shots. dug up his site here:

very cool stuff. never had the patience to explore it myself extensively but i really enjoy what others have done with it.
