Hi Inyrdreams
I have no plans (or the time) to make a video on Light Painting, but you can get a basic idea of the techniques used from this link:

Also, the Hosemaster was invented/marketed by a guy call Aaron Jones. He has lots of great light painting images on his website:

Hope this is of interest. Glade you like my work.

Beautiful and inspiring images indeed.

I have made some experiments using this technic using flashlights and laser pens with multiple exposures, and then merging the images in gimp, but I had never heard about Aaron Jones or the hosemaster. I guess your images are made in one exposure.

For those who have no idea what a hosemaster looks like (like myself), here is a link:

...and it is not cheap, if you are planning to get one.

Hi Danieic1998 - Yes, almost all my light painting shots are taken in one exposure using the Hosemaster system. The camera I use for light painting is a Canon 5D Mk111 which has a great sensor that allows very long exposures of up to about 3 mins with almost no noise (I also shoot at a very low ISO.100).
Although the camera shutter remains open, the Hosemaster has a secondary shutter that is placed in front of the lens and only opened when you wish to expose the light you are painting the subject with, to the camera. This allows you to practice the painting action on the subject and only expose to camera when you are happy with your painting movements.
As you say, the Hosemaster is far from being a cheap item. It just makes light painting far easier and more controllable. However, you can still get great results using flashlights etc.
