Experimenting with light painting

Anyone done any light painting?
i've been having a go with a DSL and tripod but if anyone has any tips to share, that would be great

Your pics look awesome! I haven't tried it yet myself but another forum member who is a photographer did it with my car (it's on one of my videos). I still don't even understand how it works, haha!

Sweet shots!
I would try to light up the car more evenly though. Looks like your bottom of your bumpers, your hood, and the top of your car are not getting enough light.

Since you're using a tripod, you can take multiple pictures lighting up different parts of the car then combine the images in photoshop.

I'm no professional by any means and I'm still trying to figure out how to properly light the car. Here was my attempt at light painting.
