    you can try searching the net regarding long exposures. i've done the same for panning shots.

    Long shutter + waving sparklers around

    Try googling for "light trails" or "light painting"

    understand exposure

    this is achieved with a long exposure and someone waving sparklers around.

    to do this, you need low ambient light, i.e. night conditions with artificial lighting, where the sparklers will be relatively bright, and exposure timing will have to be long in the first place for good exposure.

    You can tell the photog also hand-held the shot. Look at all the handshake blur. A tripod would work well too, but that depends on the effect you want.

    long exposure + good artist. LOL best to take in dark room. im not sure about this, i think i seen from some web or video that lasers will spoil the sensor, maybe some expert bros here will know whether true or not?

    Instead of sparkles, people commonly use flash lights.

    Read up on basic photography, it will really help you in the long run.

    never tried it with sparkler before looks nice...

    always use lightsticks or LED torch or candles...

    next time will try sparkler...
