How do you do light painting?
Have a dark area, fairly low ISO (stops grainyness and brings out your surrounds) , Long exposure (30 seconds to 1 minute), use a tripod, use a remote trigger (if you have one) and use Mirror lockup (if the camera can do it). Mirror lockup and Tripod just to stop the shakes (Not essential). Use a torch to set your focus and then flick to manual.
Click the shutter.
Now get in front of the lens and do something cool with an Led light or torch.
Once you have done that, you can work on your next peice of art until you have worked out the way you like to light paint.
Here is my first attempt
nice, sorry i should have read it XD
want to learn stacking espcially with macro, dunno how those crazy macro photogs do it hand held ><
I think you will find it is an expensive lens. My Canon MPE60 lens works well hand held (just need to watch DOF). My Macro's seem to benifit with more expensive lenses :(
