How to paint with glow sticks

Step one: Find a friend who is willing to strap glowsticks onto themselves and jump on a trampoline.

Step two: Get a tripod or flat surface to prop your camera on. The camera has to remain perfectly steady for about half a minute or more. No touching it! 

Step three: Find the "Bulb" setting on your camera, or choose a long shutter speed. (I found that 25 seconds worked great for this) 

Step Four: Ask your friend start jumping, and hit the button on your camera to take a picture. The shutter will remain open for however long you set it, effectively burning the light trails into your camera. 

Step Five: Enjoy the results!!
