  1. You need to set a low shutter speed on the camera, make sure it’s still, then use a sparkler/lighter/flashlight/laser pointer etc. and play with it.
    Lighters are usually accessable but I’d suggest sparklers, they’re always a good time!

  2. Thank you for blogging me!
    I guess ‘girl on girl’ culture has no space for man (: but I would of told you how to do it if you emailed me..
