Light Painting

I was introduced to light painting during a critique this week in photography class.  My classmate Leslie (you can check out her blog here) made an amazing photograph using a glowstick, tripod and slower shutter speed.  I was really intrigued!
I have learned light painting has been around for a long time.  The closest thing I can think of for this is waving around the sparklers growing up on the Fourth of July and seeing the "after image". 
You can click here for a good explanation from Wikipedia. 

Here are some images I love:

I found a basic tutorial on You Tube.  You can find it here.  I am excited to give this a try!
