I love these, My friends and I used to do this with glow sticks. The textures you can get out if doing it are so much fun!

I'd say print 'em huge, frame them, you've got abstract art there. I know when I was in Berlin with some folks I showed some people how to do this, all these kids spinning round in the streets at night with cameras just to see what happened. must've looked like right fools, but it's great fun. if you can set your shutter off in a dark room and swirl lights around different objects, that's definitely worth a try.

for example... (not mine):
There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I love the second one! Cheesy How'd you get the zig-zags on the third picture?
I tried something similar when I was experimenting with my new old camera (it's an old digital camera, but it was new to me), I slowed the shutter speed way down and zoomed in when taking the picture Smiley

Not as fun with LEDs.

These are awesome! I love taking pictures like this! I had a mode on my old camera (I called it "man at night mode" cause that's what the icon looked like) where it would flash and then keep the shutter open...the result was cool light effects, like so (thumbnails):

But, yes, no one ever seemed to think these were as cool as I do....I'm glad there is someone out there that does! And I've never thought of playing with x-mas lights...I am totally thinking about breaking some out now to try it, haha.

That is one of my favourite modes, my old camera had it, but I haven't figured out how to replicate it with my new one.  I love the effect of the trailing lights it makes!
The one with the blown lights posted by rhymewithorange is so fun and whimsical. But just the lights alone can be so fun, they can make such neat patterns.  I always tried to make hearts when I took photos like that.

The other thing I like doing with my digital camera is making the shutter speed 4 seconds or longer and then I take a key chain flashlight and spell things in the air. I can write cursive backwards so it makes my writing look forward.
