light painting

Light Painting is the slowest form of lighting and it is done by taking a photograph with a timed exposure then illuminating the subject using a light source to light up the part of a subject where you wish to be seen by constantly moving the light source during the duration of the time exposure.

how it is done? a complete darkness or a dark environment is a must so that you can paint the light while the shutter is still open in a timed exposure shot. i tried doing my version and here's what i got. this is a 10 second time elapsed shot of a rotating platter of a record player with red strobelight. then i painted a green color using a stick light on the portions of the photo that i wished to be lighted. red and green looks nice...
