    Thanks Ladies!! :)

    Merisa - Honestly, I don't know how I do it sometimes either! I think there is a little bit of luck involved in the shots I'm most happy with. I probably couldn't recreate this if I tried.

    Thanks everyone! I'm glad you all like it! That's me kneeling behind the light writing. I had the camera set for a long exposure and had a helping hand hit the shutter. :)

    Jen - Thanks girl! I know it can be frustrating, it's just patience and timing! You should give it another try, I know you can do it! Try with different light sources as well!

    Justine - Thank you so much! I've tried a flashlight before too which works great! This photograph was done with a sparkler and I love the effect from all of the little sparks flying! :)
