Sketch out half a shape with a torch

Light paint­ing with a torch is like draw­ing with a com­puter mouse – the re­sults can be wob­bly and child­like, but that’s part of their charm. To make a sym­met­ri­cal light paint­ing us­ing out­door wa­ter, po­si­tion the cam­era across the river or pond and lock open the shut­ter, then use a torch and coloured cups at­tached to a stick to paint half a sym­met­ri­cal shape, start­ing at the wa­ter’s sur­face and chang­ing colours quickly. The re­flec­tion does the rest. Keep your pic­ture in mind as you paint with the torches. It’s a bit of a guess­ing game, but each time you try you’ll learn more and get even bet­ter.
