3. I put a broomstick on a paint roller (just the frame)

then i shoved a wooden pole into the roller frame so it was wedged in. I duct taped the pole so it would stay in the frame. at the other end of the pole I duct taped a led light.
This way I could keep the broomstick planted on the ground while I circled around it while at the same time spinning the pole with the light in a loop using the paint roller.

6. Did several fun shots like this back in the 70's

 

on good old Kodachrome with a star filter (b4 PS) and had some really interesting results in that any pause in the light motion would produce a star/flare.

7. Nice

And a tad safer than stuffing a wire wisk, thats attached to a chain, full of steel wool and setting it ablaze whilst swinging it about.

9. Very Cool. I did some of this type of thing to. We hand drew the wings & halo on this one.

 

It's a lot of fun!
